— A street party planned for downtown Davison on Sept. 25 has been officially given a name.
The event will now be the Main Street Music Festival and it will take place from 1-8 p.m. on north Main Street. Proceeds from the event will go toward the Davison Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 4087, which has been having trouble paying the mortgage on its hall.
Paul Snyder, owner of Elixer Clothing in Davison, is organizing the event. He said admission to the event will be free, but there will be vendors, concessions and local musicians performing.
Proceeds come from the vendors fee. The cost is only $25 for the entire day. Snyder said he would like to have as many local vendors as possible, but anyone is welcome to set up a booth to showcase their business, merchandise, food or arts and crafts.
Snyder said there are a couple of reasons for the event.
“First and foremost, the proceeds from this fun filled day will all go toward the Davison VFW,” he said. “ Second, it gets community together to enjoy some good music for a great cause from local talented musicians from Davison.”
The Davison Police Department will also have a police cruiser on hand and the fire department will have the Fire Safety Trailer available.
Main Street will be blocked from Mill to Second Street from 12-9 p.m.
Vendors should contact Snyder at 810-845-6251. — Gary Gould
