"May 14th, 2015 – On June 14th, 4th Street in downtown Winston-Salem will host another monthly Second Sundays on 4th event. This FREE family-friendly outdoor event series, every second Sunday of the month from May to October from 3-6 pm, is presented by Flow Automotive and supported by a number of other local sponsors. Each event includes two free bands, as well as a kids’ zone (sponsored by Summit School) with free bounce houses, crafts and games. We also feature different local non-profits at each event. The events are on 4th Street between Cherry and Marshall Streets, and thanks to First Presbyterian Church there will be free parking during each of the SSO4 events in any of the nearby First Presbyterian parking lots. In conjunction with Second Sundays, a/perture cinemas will be showing a special series of vintage cartoons at 2pm on those dates (movies $5).
On stage, our June 14th SSO4 opens at 3pm with The Percussion Ensemble, a group of handicapped adults from The Enrichment Center in Winston-Salem who challenge expectations by producing mind-blowing music with driving beats and magnetic hooks. Bio Ritmo, our June headliner, was recently featured on NPR’s Tiny Desk Concert series. A hot salsa band based out of Richmond Virginia, but with members from all over Latin America and the United States, Bio Ritmo keeps bodies on the dance floor with their nitty-gritty, vintage salsa grooves while turning heads with their experimental synth tones, innovative harmonies and thought-provoking lyrics.
Our Non-Profits of the Month are Riverwood Therapeutic Riding Center, whose mission is to provide quality, professional equine assisted activities for both children and adults with special needs, and The Centers for Exceptional Children, whose mission is to educate, nurture and support children with special needs to reach their highest potential intellectually, emotionally, socially and physically. Riverwood is bringing their Mobile Education Outreach, which features a horse trailer renovated to look like the inside of a barn, with children’s activities, video presentations, and most important, their 2 live miniature ponies!
