Summer is here they tell me. Want something fun to do?
Every Friday Night from July 7th through August 11th the Downtown Woodland Revitalization (DWR) sponsors music at Hoffman Plaza. The bands are primarily local and play from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. The streets are closed off, there is sidewalk chalk for the kids (and big kids). You can bring your lawn chair, tap your toes or dance in the street if you are so inclined!
Bands range from Country, 50’s, 60’s and 70’s and Contemporary Rock. There are always some great refreshments to be had, including coffee drinks and light snacks. Vendors welcome.
Downtown Woodland Revitalization wanted to bring some excitement and attention to the Plaza area of downtown. They envision this area as the “living room” for downtown. So in 2007 DWR started to bring bands into the Plaza for a free family event. They could not do this without local businesses, the co-operation of the City of Woodland and a grant from Cowlitz County Tourism.
In addition, Woodland is offering their rejuvenated Woodland Farmers Market from 3pm-7pm, preceeding the fun of Hot Summer Nights.
Giving everybody an excellent opportunity to wind down their work week with great conversation and fresh produce and local fare, we hope you will come downtown some Friday evening and just enjoy the music, food and art features.
