Lynchburg celebrated its third annual “Get Downtown” Celebration this past week.  Main Street was closed to vehicular traffic and students and residents alike came to see street performers, listen to some great music and taste the food of our great downtown restaurants.

Crowds gathering downtown Lynchburg

The number of people that turned out was impressive!

Vice Mayor Cesar Johnson and his lovely wife

In the crowd was our councilman Cesar Johnson who just happens to be the Vice Mayor.   I frankly don’t know what a vice mayor does, but I assume he is working on bring more “vice” into our city.———-Cesar, I warned you that I would be posting something in our blog about you.

 

I can see everything and it's great.

Of course there were so many people the best way to get a clear view of the celebrations was to put on your stilts.

If walking around wasn’t your thing you could skate, but be careful, Lynchburg has a roller derby team and the gals were out in force trying to show other skaters they aren’t just another group of pretty faces.

Music on the streets of Lynchburg

Clasical music for the masses.

If you wanted some culture there was even music for you.

 

There is so much to see and do downtown that Tony Cam, manager at the Holiday Inn couldn’t contain himself and broke out in song…You have to hear and see this YouTube Video,  “Get Downtown.”

If you missed the celebration it will be back next September, but you don’t need to wait until then.  As Tony says….Get Downtown.

 

One of the reasons we purchased The Carriage House Inn Bed and Breakfast our home was because of the rebirth of the downtown area.   It is a great place that is within walking distance.  Our guests love the charm and character of our restaurants and the food has always been great.  While there is so much to see and do in and around Lynchburg, Virginia a trip downtown is a must, don’t wait until next years celebration, Get Downtown!
