Fantastic Dogwood weekend

SECOND STRING MUSIC had a huge day Saturday during the Dogwood Weekend. The parade was awesome, the Farmer's Market was back in the park, and though there weren't a lot of people at the Washington Theater concert, it was nice to hear music in there again and dream of what could be. I checked with many of our neighbors around our block and everybody reported lots of traffic and brisk sales.

I rode on the back of the Quincy Police Department's Humvee during the parade, as part of Vancil Performing Arts and our Back The Blue groups. Well, somebody had to do it ... I kept candy buckets full and made sure Sgt. Adam Yates steered straight. There were tons of people on the sidewalks enjoying the parade and the weather was perfect.

Our first two Plaza shows have been big hits - they are weather driven, and if we have sunny skies, there will be a lot of people in the Seventh and Maine Venue. Let's hope it stays that way for Akoustic Mayhem this Friday and for Noah McNally the week after.

What a great start to the spring and summer season in downtown Quincy. Up next - Gus Macker on Memorial Day Weekend, and then we get ready for Blues In The District. As always, downtown is the place to be!
