Have you been to town lately? I’m not talking about Winston Salem or Salisbury – I am referring to beautiful downtown Mocksville. There are so many things going on this summer in town.

Tami Langdon and the Downtown Merchants Group have put together a fabulous list of activities and events that will keep you as busy and engaged as you want to be. There will be movies shown in the evening at the Main Street Park, a farmers market every Wednesday in the former Mocksville Police Department parking lot, along with several concerts on the square.

Tami has planned a “Wacky Water Event” for the kids and the Downtown Merchants group have put together a “Fairy Walk” later in the summer. Don’t forget about the Cruise-In on the first Monday of the month which brings old cars and car enthusiasts from all over to our downtown.

Please refer to the Town of Mocksville website or Facebook page for dates and times.

Several of our restaurants in Mocksville will be hosting live music throughout the summer months. I have already had the pleasure of just happening upon some of our local artists in town as I have gone out to eat.  Even if you choose to eat at home – come out afterward and enjoy live music in the evening on Friday nights at The Station. I am looking forward to the day when all of our restaurants are back to full staff and operating on a regular schedule again.

With gas prices being so high – it is nice to know that we can stay local and support our local businesses.  When you are looking for activities for your kids this summer- check out Cognition and the Davie County Public Library. They both have many offerings for children throughout the summer break.

If you do happen to wander out of the city limits, you may want to stop by the Davie Community Park and take in a concert or cool off at the splash pad. If you happen to be heading up Highway 158, drop in at Raylen Vineyards. They have live music frequently and the evening sunset is beautiful from that location.
