Tons of fun planned for village strolls
WILMINGTON- This summer the public is invited to stroll downtown and see what the village has to offer. Village strolls take place on Thursdays. The dates for this month are July 5, 12, 19, and 26 from 5 to7 pm.
Shops will stay open late with entertainment and events popping up all over town. Coming up on July 12, at 4 pm, Michael Caduto kicks off the stroll at Pettee Memorial Library with “Energy Rocks,” a powerful, entertaining program about renewable energy explored through science and the arts.
Continuing on July 12, Jessie Haas will be signing her new book, “Rescue,” at Bartleby’s Books, at 4 pm. From 5 to 7, look for a performance by the Wyld Nightz Duo, face painting, a community lemonade stand, sidewalk chalk, and more pop-up community events.
The Red Fox Shop will host wine tastings each week from 5 to 7 pm. July 19 features Boyd Family Farm taking over Riverbank park with a music jam and more, and author Mark Mikolas presenting his new book “Beginner’s Guide to Recognizing Trees of the Northeast” at Bartleby’s at 5 pm.
July 26 brings juggler (and teacher) Tony Duncan to town to perform on the library lawn at 5 pm. Strollers are invited to stay and learn to juggle with Tony at a community juggle jam that runs until 7 pm. All events are free, take place rain or shine, and pop-up community participation is welcome.
