070309fridaynight2Any way you slice it, Friday nights are special in Floyd and a holiday weekend brings out even more of a crowd on the streets with music (top), street artists (right) and what Floyd is best known for: Bluegrass.

This Friday night also featured the opening of new shops in the Station on South Locust, the new retail and residential development in the rehabilitated building that once housed Mama Lazzardos.  The Floyd Artists Group celebrated their first “First Friday” evening and other new shops opened as well.

A video crew from Channel 8 in Winston Salem also visited the town as part of a piece they’re doing on the Crooked Road. Floyd Country Store co-owner Jackie Crenshaw (below) was among the interviewees.
