Assuming the rain holds out, tonight is the night when Harrisonburg Downtown Renaissance hosts FundFest. Everyone come out to Liberty Street from 5:30 to 8pm!
In case you’re not familiar, FundFest takes place on Wednesdays in the grassy area near the Farmers’ Market pavilion. For $1, you get to hear live music from bands all over the area, and beer and pizza are also for sale. The proceeds from the entire summer are split among area charities. There’s a lottery at the beginning of the season hosted at Joshua Wilton House to determine which charities may participate. HDR was fortunate to have its name drawn again this year. As this week’s host, our volunteers are doing the set up/tear down, serving the food, and handling trash duty.
Tonight’s band is Mirage. They sound pretty cool. From their website: “We hope to see everyone at FundFest and Shakin’ this year. These are always great events for a good cause. Besides where else can you hang around outside, listen to music, have a cold beer and eat pizza all while you are helping a local charity?”
Where else, indeed.
