The Downtown LaGrange Development Authority will be holding its annual Patriotic Community Event on Friday, July 2 at the Sweetland Amphitheater, according to a press release from the Downtown LaGrange Development Authority. Doors will open at 7:00 p.m.
First, under the direction of Neal Brumbeloe, 50 members of the LaGrange Community Band will perform patriotic music on the Sweetland Stage starting at 8 p.m. After the concert, “The Secret Life of Pets 2” will be shown on a large outdoor screen.
Sunsets at events like this are free, and guests can organize picnics with food and drink outside. Local vendors Holloway’s Pork Skins, Crave Cookies and the King of Pops will be on hand to sell snacks, according to promotions and marketing manager Barbie Watts.
Customers are encouraged to wear red, white and blue clothing.
A limited number of stage side tables are available. To reserve one, contact Watts at 706-298-4534. Those at the best decorated table will receive a prize.
âWe haven’t done anything since the start of the pandemic, and we’re all looking forward to playing somewhere, sometime,â Brumbeloe said. “So the whole group is looking forward to doing this, because we’ve been missing out on being together this whole year, so we’re really looking forward to Friday’s schedule.”
