It’s time to put on those walking shoes, get out of the house and take a “Stroll On Main Street.”
Vikki Day will host Gallery Night’s “Stroll On Main Street” Tuesday evening from 6:30 p.m. until 9:30 p.m. and Atmore area residents will have the opportunity to view many pieces of art as well as taste wine and other refreshments.
There will be many types of entertainment during the evening of fun including some dancing, according to Day, owner of Day Gallery on Main.
Day said the belly dancing will begin around 7 p.m. and again at 8 p.m. in the Day Gallery on Main. Both performances will be 10-minute sessions.
Even though the “Stroll On Main Street” event will take place at many Main Street locations, there will be several musicians featured in the Day Gallery on Main throughout the evening.
John Mascaro of Walnut Hill, Fla. will be accompanied by pianist Conrad Webber.
