Today will be a busy one for Alton Main Street as a series of events gets underway starting with the Farmers and Artisans Market and the Odds and Ends Sidewalk Sale this morning. After those events wrap up organizers will kick it into high gear as the first Downtown Block Party of the season starts at 4 p.m.

This month’s events will include the return of children’s activities for the earlier hours according to Alton Main Street Executive Director Sara McGibany.

Those activities wrap up at 7 p.m. when the focus shifts to the main stage for a performance by this month’s headlining act Butch Wax and the Hollywoods, who will play a mixture of 60’s, 70’s and MoTown favorites until around 10 p.m.

And the Father’s Day weekend wraps up tomorrow with the All Wheels Drive In Car Show lasting from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. on Sunday. For more information on any of Alton Main Street’s events you can call 463-1016 or by visiting
