This is certainly not a summer for being bored in Mocksville. There are so many things going on over the next few months that you would have to work hard to have a moment of boredom. The Davie Community Park kicked off their concert series last Saturday with Diamond Rio. The
number of cars in the parking lot reminded me of the football playoff games Davie hosted several years back. For those who didn’t want to attend the large concert, there were two options downtown: live music on the square and at The Station.

The weather was beautiful, and all the live music venues were well-attended. Please check the Town of Mocksville Facebook page and the Davie Community Park website for upcoming events and concerts. There will be outdoor movies throughout the summer both downtown and at the Community Park. The downtown Mocksville Fairywalk will be June 22nd which is always a fun event for the kids. Downtown merchants are working hard to ensure the town looks like a scene from the movie Tinkerbell.

Downtown Mocksville will also be hosting outdoor concerts on the quad in front of Restaurant 101 and West Depot in front of the Phone Place this summer. The 2nd Annual Rotary Mocksfest event will be on August 3rd and will feature some local talent along with food trucks, vendors, and kids’ outdoor activities.

Cognition will partner with the Davie County Public Library during Mocksfest to babysit kids at their location on Salisbury Street. Parents can bring canned goods, which will go to A Storehouse for Jesus, as admission to the activities at Cognition. Please come out that day to support Storehouse, Cognition, the Davie County Public Library, and the Mocksville Rotary Club.

I haven’t even scratched the surface of all the events in Mocksville this summer. There will be activities at the Brock with the Arts Council, Vacation Bible Schools will be held all over the county, and the Davie County Public Library has weekly activities planned for the kids as
part of their summer reading initiative.

For our young athletes, there are camps, clinics, and games for anyone interested. And don’t forget the Splash Pad at the Davie Community Park. It will definitely cool you off when we hit the high temperatures this summer.
