Downtown Live summer season wraps up

First Friday to feature performance by high school dancers, car show, live music

ASHLAND — Tonight’s Downtown Live will wrap up a successful summer season of the street party compliment to Ashland’s First Friday Art Walk.

Slated events include a performance by local high school dancers, the established Car Cruise-In, inflatables and plenty of live music. The Return, a 60s and 70s rock group that’s been together for nearly 40 years will perform on the main stage beginning at about 6 p.m., said Danny Craig, Ashland Main Street Director.

“It looks like the weather is going to be great,” said Craig, inviting out the crowds. “You won’t have many more days, you better take advantage of it. It is all free. Just find a parking place and come on in,” he added.

Also tonight, the Pendleton Art Center, in cooperation with Our Lady of Bellefonte Hospital Women’s Center has gone pink to honor October’s designation as National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The “Pink Art” exhibit features more than 50 works of art created by hospital employees and other members of the OLBH family on display.

The works will be sold via a silent auction, which begins tonight at 5 p.m. Following Second Look Saturday, the works will be moved to the administrative hall of the women’s center for another week for continued bidding.

“It looks really cool,” said Pendleton artist Denise Spaulding, of the exhibit. “They have filed a three room studio, and it just looks really good. They have done a wonderful job. You can tell they got really enthused about it. They really have an interest in defeating this cancer,” she said.

“Anyone who has been affected by Breast Cancer should come and look at it, and help this cause,” she added.

The center will also feature live entertainment by musician Scott Miller.

Tonight will also be the final edition of the Songwriters Showcase at the Chimney Corner Cafe, until next spring. It begins at 9 p.m. and continues until 11 p.m., featuring Sister Redden Hair and Jason Mays from Split Nixon.
