“Brown Bag is such a popular event and we look forward to hosting it every year.  We encourage everyone to come downtown for lunch during the week and enjoy the music, food, businesses and the beauty of downtown during the Spring. This year we will even be extending the concert into the evening, which falls on First Friday. Shaun Hopper will return to play live on the courthouse square from 6pm-9pm,” said Main Street Director Ellen Hill.
