Statesville is celebrating the completion of Phase I of the Downtown Streetscape this Friday, May 17, at noon, with a ribbon cutting, cake and lemonade, balloons and what every party needs – live music!

The Statesville High School Blue & Grey Singers will perform a variety of pop and acapella songs in front of Groucho’s Deli beginning about 11:30 a.m.   A brief program will begin at noon on the square, followed by an official “traffic-stopping” ribbon cutting about 12:15 p.m.

Everyone is invited to bring their lunch downtown and enjoy live music along the new streetscape patio areas.  On Center St., you’ll hear musician Jeff Brown in front of Westmoreland Antiques; Brooke & Carter in front of Sweet Things Bakery; and Silver Strings (flute and harp) on the northwest corner of the square.  The bluegrass music of Jewels Harp can be enjoyed on E. Broad St. in front of Hop’s Place Restaurant.  Music will continue from about 12:15 until 1:30 p.m.

Free cake and lemonade will be served at the square as long as it lasts.
