Spirit of community makes our area special

This evening “Bayou Diesel” will play at Roger’s Park in Tryon. Summer Tracks, a free concert-in the park series is brought to us during the summer by Peter Eisenbrown and the Town of Tryon. The summer concerts are also sponsored in part by local businesses and this week local Terry Ackermann is the sponsor in support of Big Brothers & Big Sisters.

Up the hill in Saluda the oh so popular farmers market is another example of people working together to help their neighbor and each other and at the same time provide a good time for all.  Farmers and vendors bring their crafts and wares to market and the atmosphere is so jovial it’s almost like being at a festival.  The kick-off time is 4:30 p.m. and with the market wrapping up around 6:30 p.m.

Saturday you have two options for farmers markets one in Landrum and the other in Columbus, both starting in the morning. The list of activities and events goes on and on; you’ll want to check our community calendar out for a more complete list.
