There’s plenty to do in Rome and Floyd County this weekend.
Friday night, the First Friday Concert Series resumes on the town green with a performance by the Live Exchange Band.
The Live Exchange Party Band is a seven-piece band that creates the ultimate entertainment experience incorporating a unique mix of everything from Motown to today’s hits.
The opening act will kick off at 7 p.m. with Matty Croxton who offers a high-energy performance of hit songs; followed by the Live Exchange Band who will have the audience dancing and singing all night long!
The public is welcome to bring chairs and blankets for general seating on the lawn. Open container is permitted throughout downtown; many businesses provide easy grab-and-go options to take to the concert.
Parking will be free at 3rd Ave deck, 4th Ave deck, and 6th Ave deck starting at 5 pm.
