Youth Scavenger Hunt During June First Friday
The First Friday Committee of the Leonardtown Business Association is hosting  their first fun, family-friendly Scavenger Hunt for youth ages 19 and under on Friday, June 5 from 5 – 8 p.m. as part of their June First Friday! 

 Families should register their children at Yellow Door Art Studios, 22795 Washington St, Leonardtown, MD 20650, to receive the list of clues.  

Participants then follow the clues to various sites around town and take a selfie at each one with their phone. 

Once they’ve found all the sites on the list, players should check back in at Yellow Door to have their photo answers verified and be entered into a drawing for two half-day kayak or paddle board rentals from Dave Lane at Patuxent Adventure Center (!

While the kids are hunting, local band Pond Scum will be providing lively, traditional Celtic dance music in the Square.   This upbeat group of fiddle, button box, whistle, guitar, and percussion has more than 500 Irish, Scottish & French Canadian melodies in their repertoire.

First Friday is a celebration of the diverse businesses that form the Leonardtown Business Association.  During First Fridays, the galleries, retail shops, restaurants and other businesses in and around Town are open late and offer a variety of live entertainment, demos, receptions, hands-on activities, and seasonal promotions in addition to their regular products.

Downtown Tunes Begins May 23 in Leonardtown

Downtown Tunes Begins May 23 in Leonardtown

The ninth season of Downtown Tunes opens in the Leonardtown Square on Saturday, May 23, 2015, starting off a summer-long concert program that features a variety of musical styles including R&B, Acoustic, Classic Rock & Blues and Country.  All performances are on the fourth Saturday of the month and all are free.  Shows begin at 6 pm and will run about three hours.

May’s concert will feature the Leonardtown Square debut of Latrice Carr.  With a background in gospel, performances at international venues, and a repertoire that spans from Etta James to Maroon 5, Ms. Carr

promises to start the 2015 season off with passion, style and soulful R&B. 

The series will continue on June 27 with former Tonight’s Alibi front woman Megan Nosek and solo guitarist Josh Airhart playing a funky rhythmic acoustic set, and on July 25 with Jennifer Cooper and Groovespan putting their creative spin on Classic Rock and Blues.  On August 22, the charming country powerhouse Sara Gray returns to the Square - this time joined by rising local soloist Robbie Boothe.  

According to series producer James LePore, Sara and Robbie had originally been slated for the June concert, but Sara was given the opportunity to open for country star Luke Bryan.  “What could I say?” quipped LePore.  “It’s a great opportunity for her, and we want to encourage local artists, not hold them back.  So we moved Sara and Robbie to August 22.”

All shows are free, and concert-goers are invited to bring chairs or blankets to sit on. Downtown restaurants will be open before and during the shows, and many of the surrounding local businesses will stay open until 6:00 p.m. to allow for browsing and buying before the concerts start.

The series is organized and hosted by the Leonardtown Business Association and sponsored in part by Quality Built Homes, Winegardner Automotive, Marrick Homes, Guy Distributing, and Big Larry’s Eatery. Rain dates will be the next day, Sunday, for all shows.
