Tuesday Night Live

Tuesday Night Live

Johnson’s Tuesday Night Live opens on July 9th with Long Gone John and The Tall Grass Revival on the outdoor stage at Legion Field, School Street. John is known for toe-tapping music that weaves notes into tapestries of sentiment that comfort the soul.  6:00 to 8:30 PM.

This community event brings young and not-so-young together for music, dancing,  and visiting.  Food vendors will provide good eats at this family friendly event including the Historical Society with slices of homemade pie and cake and McKenzie hot dogs. You may want to pack a picnic basket with supper and snacks or just bring re-usable utensils and dishes and chose from the great selection of food. The TNL committee is encouraging recycle and reuse to eliminate and reduce trash.

Bring a chair or blanket for a free evening of great music.  Parking is along School Street, at the Elementary School parking lot, and  the McClelland Hall lot on College Hill.  Rain or shine.  Info at 730-2943.
