Dance in Hailey’s streets

'A Night of Music' will create lively atmosphere

Express Staff Writer

Hat Trick

Art walks are all the rage. Sponsored by the Sun Valley Art Gallery Association, Ketchum has held monthly art walks for years. Anyone who wandered the streets during last Saturday's Ketchum Art Walk knows that it's an educational night highlighted by sociability and fun.

The city of Hailey recently joined the fray and this July is focusing on its many forms of arts—on the streets and in its studios, shops and galleries.

Inspired by the opportunities inherent in having lots of regional bands and multiple venues, "Hailey's Night of Music," will take place from 4 to 9 p.m. Monday, July 14, along the downtown corridor of Hailey. As it is also Bastille Day (liberté, égalité, fraternité!), there is ample reason to celebrate. Folks can walk from one end of town to the other while checking in on various forms of the music from folk to rock, strings to country. Belly up to the bar or a table and grab an appetizer or dinner, enjoy a martini here or a glass of wine there.

From sushi and salads to burgers and Mexican food, Hailey's restaurants and pubs will open up for this unique family friendly night of rhythm and tunes and dancing in the streets.

Each venue will host a band, trio, duo or solo entertainer, mostly outside. The event is sponsored by the Hailey Chamber of Commerce and the Hailey Arts Commission. No cover charges will apply: and every venue is open to the public, though a reservation at some spots, such as CK's Real Food, where the string band Incognito will play are advisable.

Finally, the Night of Music will show that Hailey is not just the city that has the highest population in the Wood River Valley, most of the valley's families, a theater, parks, a river that runs through it and fantastic dinning spots. It is, frankly, one happenin' burg.
