STATELINE NEWS -- Reverend Raven and the Chain Smokin Altar Boys will perform at the Celebrate Weekend and Street Dance in Beloit from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. and The Eddie Butts Band from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m. Friday, Aug. 1.
Downtown Beloit Association Executive Director Shauna El-Amin says that it’s not only a great party, it supports the work the DBA does throughout the year. “It’s our largest fundraiser of the year,” El-Amin said. “But really, it’s just a good chance for people to get out on the streets and dance. It has a nightlife sort of feel to it. We have local bands playing onstage, and we close down the whole block of State Street.”
The street dance begins at 5:30 p.m. On Saturday, the festivities continue with the farmers market from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. and sidewalk sales until 2 p.m. For more event details, http://downtownbeloit.com/us/events/celebrate-weekend/
