Friday Night Live Concert Series Returning to Belmont

Get your dancing shoes ready, Friday Night Live is returning to Belmont after a year away. Beginning this Friday, expect a great time with live music food trucks, a beverage garden, and kids activity zone downtown in an area for pedestrians only. Don’t be left out, this great event brings the entire community together.

Friday Night Live was started around ten years ago and typically brings 6,000 to 8,000 people to downtown Belmont. The city closes the streets to cars so it is safe for families to walk through all of the festivities. The event begins at 6 pm with a D.J. playing songs for an hour until the live music starts. The concert will end at 10 pm.

There are five concerts planned for this season:

  • Friday, May 4: Coming up Brass
  • Friday, May 18: Blackwater Rhythm & Blues
  • Friday, June 1: Steve Ownes & Summertime
  • Friday, June 22: The Entertainers
  • Wednesday, July 4: Gary Lowder & Smokin Hot (This is part of Red, White, & Belmont festival and fireworks which includes food, family games and entertainment during the day as well as the concert in the evening followed by fireworks.)

The main stage is on Main Street near Stowe Park. The city is providing additional parking to accommodate guests. This parking will be behind City Hall and off Mill Street. Additional parking is in the works for the parking lot across the street from the General Store. Belmont also recently installed a Wi-Fi zone free for public use.

Last year, there were concerts in Stowe Park. They were such a hit that they will return in September and October. These may be in the park or on Main Street like Friday Night Live. Details are still being worked out at this time and dates have not yet been announced.

Be sure to check out this fantastic event, but if you want to drink alcohol, be sure to bring your I.D. There will be designated areas for alcohol.

Enjoy these beautiful spring and summer nights with great music and fellowship with the community.

Sportsplex one step closer to reality


The York County Council on Monday approved a preliminary step to bring an athletic complex to the Lake Wylie area, according to a Rock Hill Herald report.

The council OK’d plans to set up a special tax district to help pay for the nearly $7 million complex that would be adjacent to Crowders Creek Elementary School.

The 50 acres adjacent to the school is owned by York County, however, the council members were split on who would ultimately run the complex, as the country does not want the responsibility.

Lake Wylie Sports Commission is the group behind the drive for the complex, but the commission does not want to run the complex. It is possible the special tax district, once established, would be the entity responsible for the complex, according to the report.

The hope is the complex, with 3 multipurpose and 3 baseball/softball diamonds, would drive more tourism by bringing sports tournaments to the Lake Wylie area. The hope is that local restaurants and lodging would also benefit from the proposed complex.

Signatures and fund-raising are the next step in bringing the facility to fruition.

In December, York City Council approved $2.45 million from its hospitality fund toward construction costs.

Ballots are to be circulated in 11 districts, and 2,751 signatures are needed in order for the sports complex special tax district proposal to be added to the November ballot.

Neighborhoods closest to the proposed complex are Autumn Cove at Lake Wylie and Tullamore, which is still being built out.

Catawba Park revision presented, vote soon

catawbaparkA Rock Hill-based engineering company presented Tega Cay City Council with its latest plans for a proposed recreational park facility that potentially will span 62 acres below New Gray Rock Road, across the river from Westminster Park.

Campco Engineering presented its revised plan Dec 21. A vote is expected in January, according to a Rock Hill Herald report.

Tega Cay owns 10 acres. The city is in talks with Duke Energy and Clear Springs Baxter for an additional 52 acres.

The site along the river would add sports fields, picnic shelters, a canoe/kayak launch, playgrounds and restrooms, among other amenities. The site already has a boat ramp and fishing areas, according to the report.

The final design planning could take six months. Design approval for the city’s 10 acres means work could start on that parcel of land sooner while agreements with the other land owners are negotiated.
