WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- Memorial Day weekend has arrived, and with it the unofficial start to summer. And of course, Friday nights in downtown Wilmington throughout the summer mean the Downtown Sundown Concert Series.
WWAY NewsChannel 3 is proud to sponsor the ninth season of Downtown Sundown. The fun and excitement kick off tonight in Riverfront Park in front of the Federal Courthouse along the Riverwalk. Chasing Opal opens things up at 6 p.m. Then at 8 p.m., headliner Satisfaction, a Rolling Stones tribute, hits the stage to get summer off to a rockin' start.
The Downtown Sundown Concert Series is a free, family friendly event that attracts both local residents and out of town visitors. The concerts are designed to provide interesting and fun entertainment for attendees, spur interest and activity to Downtown during the early evening hours, and to raise funds for WDI’s downtown development programs.
Proceeds from drink sales each week benefit an area non-profit. This week's beneficiary is Nami Wilmington.
We hope to see you tonight and each Friday night for Downtown Sundown!
