You know how everyone has their favorite day of the week? Me, too. I live for the third Wednesdays of May, June, July and August. That’s when Brackenbury Square in Beautiful Downtown Lewiston comes Alive After Five!
I like to go early, around 3:30pm or so, and get my shopping done at the Farmers Market – preserves, veggies, bread, it’s all there. With my errand for the day finished, I’m on a bee line to find something tasty from one of the food vendors. After grabbing street food (delicious and no dishes to do – win/win), I find a spot by the stage and settle down to enjoy dinner and a show. Bluegrass, Indie Rock, Blues, Celtic, ‘50’s Rock, Jazz – the quality entertainment that finds its way to the stage in this valley is amazing . . . seriously.
My favorite part is when I leave. I take off my shoes and, on the way to my car, I walk barefoot through the fountain in The Dance. It’s cool and wet and makes me giggle every time. And who doesn’t love a good giggle?
