Slapwater will return to Merchants Square for the fourth year in a row to cap off the July series of Summer Breeze concerts. Slapwater is a 10-member, high-energy band has been entertaining crowds in Hampton Roads for nearly 40 years with the powerful horn-driven music that never fails to inspire audiences to get up and dance. The concert takes place at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, July 25.
In addition to the concert, Merchants Square offers free entertainment for younger members of the audience beginning at 6:30 p.m. on Duke of Gloucester Street, between Williams-Sonoma and Talbots. Entertainment includes face painting, bubble making and clowns.
All Summer Breeze concerts take place on Duke of Gloucester Street in Merchants Square and are free to the public.
Concertgoers are encouraged to bring lawn chairs and their dancing shoes to the performances. Food and beverages, including carryout, are available from Merchants Square’s nine restaurants.
Convenient concert night parking is available at the Prince George Street garage and the lot at the corner of South Henry and Francis Streets.
The Summer Breeze Concert Series is sponsored by Merchants Square, the City of Williamsburg Department of Parks and Recreation, and Legacy Financial Group.
