3rd Friday August 20th - Water World!
Salisbury, MD: August 20, 2021 is the next 3rd Friday in Downtown Salisbury. 3rd Friday will be held outdoors with artists and crafters filling the streets, live music, and special events. This month’s theme is Water World – so you can stay cool - with wacky water misters, bubbles and water themed activities.
Water World wouldn’t be complete without getting wet! Check out the 3rd Friday Splash Zone on E. Main Street with mister tents, and wacky water toys just down the street from the complimentary bike valet.
On N. Division Street, there will be live music from local rock band The Queen’s Bishop with a perfect balance of musical genres just like your favorite variety station.
Be sure to check out The Mane Event, in front of The Brick Room, where local long-haired women will be auctioning off sections of their hair to make wigs for those with medical hair loss in honor of the memory of Ashley Gilkerson.
The Mane Event will donate locks lovingly chopped by Edit Hair Salon stylists to Hair We Share, and all proceeds will be donated to St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital, Ashley’s preferred charity.
For more water themed adventures, check out SBY Movies on the River at the Riverwalk Amphitheater after 3rd Friday. This month’s movie is Disney’s Moana, where an adventurous teenager sails out on a daring mission to save her people. SBY Movies on the River is free to attend with showtime starting at 8:30 p.m.
On the Plaza, artists and crafters line the streets with handmade wares. Blackwater Apothecary invites the community to participate in an interactive art installation in conjunction with Wicomico Goes Purple; titled “Letters to the Lost: Letters to the Living”. Community members are invited to stop by Blackwater Apothecary to participate, located on the second floor of City Center Building.
