Step back into Renaissance times in Downtown Salisbury on Friday, Aug. 18, during the August 3rd Friday event.
Attendees are invited to dress in family-friendly period costumes for the “Ye Olde Time Warp” theme, though weapons should be left at home. People can also create a one-of-a-kind flower crown at Seraphic Blooming Co.’s vendor booth. King’s Ransom, a classic and modern rock band, will perform, and artists and crafters will be set up along the streets. 3rd Friday runs from 5-8 p.m.
Mathieu Glass Art will demonstrate glass blowing on-site; the Salisbury University Quadball Club will share information about the sport, which is inspired by quidditch; and there will be fun, Renaissance-themed games to take part in.
