As we slowly crawl out from under the COVID-19 pandemic and the subsequent shutdowns, there are signs of returning to normalcy all around us.
One of those signs is the return of Southgate’s Thursday in Market Center Park, the weekly farm, craft and entertainment event that was shut down last year by the virus.
Thursdays in Market Center Park will begin this year on Thursday, July 1 and run each Thursday through July 26. There will be a total of eight market days this year.
The events will carry weekly themes and there will be live music and food trucks available.
The theme of the first event is -naturally – welcome back and the band Athens Creek will provide the entertainment.
July 8 – Is Ladies Night, with the popular local band Wisteria playing.
July 15 – Is Vintage day at Thursdays in Market Center Park and local favorite Toppermost, a Beatles tribute band will entertain.
July 22 – Is Kids Day and Christmas in July, with Category 5 blowing in to provide the musical backdrop.
July 29 – Is Broadway on the Park Day.
August 5 – Brings Mexican Food Madness and the band All Directions.
August 12 – Is Whiskey and Whiskers Day and the band Weekend Comeback will play.
August 19 – Is Southgate Business Appreciation Day and the Downriver Community Band will provide the entertainment.
August 26 – Closing out the season will be Sweet Treat Day and the Band Channel 3 will be on hand to play the season out.
