Sunset Stroll on Sunset Drive Friday
Long ago, people called these events "happenings," and although it goes by another name, a happening it is.
People, music, art and food: Entertainment, mountain style.
One visitor aptly described Blowing Rock's monthly Sunset Stroll on Sunset Drive as the best neighborhood party he had ever gone to.
Folks can see for themselves this Friday, July 15, at 5:30 p.m. on Sunset Drive in downtown Blowing Rock, featuring galleries, art, refreshments and more.
Participating galleries are Feather Your Nest Gallery (110 Sunset Drive), Glen-Scott Gallery (153 Sunset Drive), Art & Artifacts (159 Sunset Drive), The Mountain Cottage (304 Sunset Drive), and Morning Star Gallery (257 Sunset Drive).
Live music will be on hand at both Crippen's Country Inn (239 Sunset Drive) and The Best Cellar (203 Sunset Drive) at the Inn at Ragged Gardens.
Weather permitting, music and bars will be outdoors. Strollers can bring a blanket to spread on the lawn at Ragged Gardens, where they can set the kids down and bliss out with music, drinks and lawn food under the old, shady trees.
Christopher's Wine & Cheese (110 Sunset Drive) will host a wine tasting early that evening.
Other participating businesses are Blowing Rock Estate Jewelry & Antiques (167 Sunset Drive), Jakes at the Rock (150 Sunset Drive), and Blowing Rock Grille & Bert's Bar (349 Sunset Drive).
Look for the balloons! They will help you find your way to the participating businesses.
