Entertainment comes in many stripes, and next week offers many amusements in the form of bargains, celebrations and performances. Here’s a short list of some of the events on tap during the next few days.
DEALS AND STEALS
The Historic Macon Foundation will host a flash sale, featuring selected inventory from the upcoming 38th annual Flea Market fundraiser in October. Drop by the sale Saturday morning at its location -- on Cherry Street next to The Rookery -- to pickup summer items at bargain prices, including outdoor furniture, gardening gadgets, inflatable tubes, beach chairs, sunglasses, camping gear and more.
By the way, Historic Macon is also collecting tax-deductible donations of items for the October sale, including furniture, china, kitchen goods, garden gadgets, art and everything in between. They also have a call out for volunteers to perform duties such as pricing and cleaning sale items, picking up donations, serving as cashiers, etc. Contact Emily Hopkins at 478-742-5084 for more information.
PICNIC AND DANCE
If you, like me, love good food and good music, then you’re sure to have a blast at the Summer’s Night Picnic & Dance happening at the City Auditorium. BYOPB (bring your own picnic basket) filled with your choice of good food and drink, then be prepared to celebrate summer while listening to the melodic sounds of one of the region’s most popular bands, the Grapevine Band. Billed as Georgia’s favorite party band, the band is sure to stimulate a festive atmosphere that is filled with lots of energy.
Presented by Medcen Community Health Foundation, this evening of music and dancing will take place Saturday evening. The doors of the auditorium open at 6:30 p.m.; the dancing begins shortly thereafter!
MUSIC AND FAITH
Pianist Jon Schmidt makes a brief diversion from his national tour with the Piano Guys for an appearance in Macon next week. Schmidt, who describes his style of music as new age classical, goes solo from the pop and classical music YouTube stars and recording artists in order to bring an evening of music and testimony to a local audience.
The concert is scheduled for Tuesday at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Call 478-238-4683 for more information about this free event.
