Lucky Number 13 Country Jam
Downtown Florence is going country on Friday, July 13th with the Lucky Number 13 Country Jam party in the 100 block of North Dargan Street. The family-oriented event will celebrate Friday the 13th as well as welcome and invite the NHPA World Horseshoe Tournament attendees currently visiting Florence to experience Downtown Florence while they are here. Locals are encouraged to attend the event, too and not only enjoy a night of country music and fun, but also extend some warm Florence hospitality to the visitors of our community.
The event will start at 5:30 and the Barry Brown Band will take the stage at 6:00 playing a great combination of both Country and Southern Rock. Barry Brown and his band are famous for putting on one of the most energetic Country and Southern Rock shows in the southeast. They’ve had the good fortune to be the opening act for such artists as Kenny Chesney, Brooks and Dunn, Hank Williams Jr., Sugarland, Gary Allen, Sammy Kershaw, Gretchen Wilson, and many others, and most recently played Myrtle Beach’s Carolina County Music Festival. Admission is free, attendees are encouraged to bring chairs but no coolers are permitted. In addition to some great music from the Barry Brown Band, there will be inflatables and face painters for the kids and adults can try their luck at the prize wheel with a chance to win hundreds of dollars in prizes including a chance to win cash in the Lucky 13 Cash Money Grab Machine where participants get inside try to grab dollar bills that are swirling inside. All proceeds from the prize wheel will go to Lucky Dog Animal Rescue.
There will also be a cornhole tournament starting at 6:30PM sponsored by Local Motive Brewery. Those wishing to participate need to register no later than 6:15PM. The tournament will be limited to a field of 32 teams, first come, first serve. The tournament will be single elimination, but the championship will best two out of three. Prize money will be $50 for first place, $25 for second and $25 for the first person to put 4 bags in the hole. Various food vendors will be on hand including Wholly Smokin’, Victors, Ashley’s Yummy Tummy, Liberty Station, Kona Ice, Erica’s and others. There will also be plenty of cold soft drinks, wine and beer including Bud Lite, Michelob Ultra and various craft beers including Angry Orchard Rosé and Local Motive featured beers.
