It's almost time for Powell Night Out again-- Thursday, June 2, from 5:00-8:00 p.m. Many of historic downtown Powell's merchants will stay open late and give you LOTS of great reasons to visit that night!

The Market at Serendip has an especially fun incentive to visit:

Appearing live on Serendip's front porch for Powell Night Out:

3C Highway!!

3C Highway is a local musical group that plays the classics from Twinkle Twinkle Little Star for youngsters, to Don’t Get Around Much Anymore for Senior Citizens.

The unique sound of 3C Highway’s repertoire, performed by Keys, Sax, Guitar, Bass, Drums and Vocals, takes the audience on a musical road of the classics: love songs, dance band numbers, light jazz, country, cajun, New Orleans style, Rock and Roll, and folk songs.

Make plans to visit Powell Night Out and join us for the fun!!
