In June, we are bringing back the popular Freestyle Connection BMX Team for 3 action-packed stunt shows. Also on site, kids can bring their bicycle and test their skills on the Bike Rodeo Course. Learn how to safely maneuver through obstacles that you may encounter on the roads or trails.

In July, Mahealani’s Polynesian Entertainment will return to Anniston for our Summer Luau. Mahealani spent the last several months dancing in Hawaii and we are so excited to welcome her group back to Anniston! Join us as they take our community through various authentic island dances.

The Chopped Competition Returns in August, as a few of our downtown restaurants compete to take the title of Chopped Champion from reigning winner, Effina’s Downtown.

New this year, Main Street Anniston presents, Decades Night for our September Fourth Friday. As with all our Fourth Fridays, we encourage you to dress for the theme. Pick your favorite decade and come downtown for a night of groovy fun. This might be the end of our summer event series as we begin to gear up for our fall and winter activities but, that don’t mean you won’t feel your temperature rising… when Elvis takes the stage!  

We love our vendors and can’t wait to have you join us for Fourth Friday, but please remember you must submit a new application for each Fourth Friday you plan to attend.
