The first Meet Me in the Street this year kicks off tonight in downtown Henderson.

The event features food and drinks, as well as live music and room for dancing.

Local businesses serving as sponsors of the event will be on hand, many setting up with free promotional materials.

This year, the first two concerts will be on Thursdays, while the last one will be on Friday.

This year’s lineup features oldies, beach band North Tower on Thursday, April 24.

The following month, the chamber’s bringing back local favorite Steve Owens and Summertime on Thursday, May 29. The band plays a unique blend of Carolina beach, Southern soul and rock ‘n’ roll.

Finally, Mike Brooks and The Konnection Band — which plays a mix of everything, including top 40, rock and country — will close out the series Friday, Aug. 15.

The event will stay on Breckenridge Street despite construction of the performing arts center. Barnes said the area is fenced off, and he anticipates no safety issue.
