6 — Mount Olive Messenger Wednesday, April 25, 2018 F riday night's kickoff events continue to grow, and this year are being referred to as a mini- festival in their own right. All of the activities will be centered on the 200 block of North Center Street. "I think the whole Friday night thing is cool," festival co-chairman Lynn Williams said. "I think we have sort of named it N.C. Pickle Festival Friday Night Downtown. Now we are starting to put together enough events that it is a draw in and of itself. "You have the music. You have the carnival rides. We have the chili cook-off, and we have the Cuke Patch run. We have a set of sponsors who have agreed to come on board for that on Friday night." The festival has enough sponsorships in place to cover the night's expenses, Williams said. For the second year in a row, the Friday night free con- cert will be held downtown on North Center Street from 7 to 10 p.m. The Tazz band will perform from 7 to 9 p.m. Dance music will be played from 6 to 7 p.m. and from 9 to 10 p.m. It also will be the second year that the Cuke Patch 5K run will be a glow run, which will be from 8 to 9 p.m. Carnival rides will once again be set up in the Steele Memorial Library parking lot Friday and Saturday, April 27 and 28. Friday night, festival-goers can buy a $12 wristband and ride as many rides as they want. Tri- County FRIDAY NIGHT ON THE STAGE FREE CONCERT 7 TO 10 P.M. NORTH CENTER STREET THE TAZZ BAND 7 TO 9 P.M. DOWNTOWN DANCE MUSIC 6 TO 7 P.M. 9 TO 10 P.M. Friday night downtown will include music, carnival rides and a good time. Story by Steve Herring SEE PAGE 7
