Summer time brings another great festival tradition. Music, food and fun will fill the Square in downtown Marion when Uptown Getdown returns August 4.

Every Thursday night at 6:00 p.m. you'll enjoy live music by the area's best bands. Here is this year's lineup (and on a personal note, I am especially excited to see Alisabeth Von Presley on the bill, she is one of my favorite local artists!)

8/4         Bob Door and the Blues Band   

8/11       Compass Rose                                

8/18       Alisabeth Von Presley                

8/25       Eight Seconds

Area food vendors will offer a variety of good  eats and drinks. Its a fun family event that age appropriate for all, and admission is free. Chairs and coolers are welcome in City Square Park, but please leave pets at home.
