The City of Hickory has scheduled a variety of entertainment for the newly-opened Sails on the Square in downtown Hickory.
The city plans to build on the success of the August 10, 2012 grand opening by sponsoring “Sails in September”, a mini-concert series on Fridays throughout the month.
The line-up features acts from folk music to a blues with a different group performing every Friday night, including the Hickory Music Factory’s Drum Circle on the second Saturday of September. In addition, Ulysses Long, who most recently performed on “America’s Got Talent”, will perform on October 20, 2012.
The community is invited to picnic or grab a bite to eat or drink at one of the local restaurants in the area. There are numerous tables and chairs for those attending to sit back, relax and enjoy the ambiance of the new community gathering spot on Union Square.
Events at the Sails on the Square are posted on hickorync.gov, under Quick Links on the left hand side of the home page.
