Music, rain barrel auction on tap for First Fridays

GOSHEN —  “Sweet Summer Kick-Off” is the theme for First Fridays this week, with musical performances and a rain barrel auction highlighting the downtown Goshen festival.

The featured performer will be Kellin Watson, who will be in concert from 7:30 to 9 p.m. on the courthouse lawn. From Asheville, N.C., Watson is a touring singer-songwriter whose sound incorporates elements of blues, pop, folk and soul. In December 2011, her song “Give Up the Ghost” was featured on CBS’ “The Good Wife” program. Watson is on tour promoting her album “Halo of Blue.”

Other musical showcases Friday will include:

• The Raise the Bar Drumline, performing from 5:30 to 6:15 p.m. on the courthouse lawn. The percussionists’ performance will incorporate drumming and dance.

• Student recitals are set at 6, 7 and 8 p.m. at First Presbyterian Church, 215 E. Lincoln Ave. Musicians from Goshen and Fairfield high schools will perform.

Rain barrels

Also part of First Fridays will be the Elkhart River Restoration Association’s annual rain barrel auction.

Organizers say rain barrels that have been “artistically enhanced” by local painters will be auctioned. Funds generated will be shared by local artists and the River Restoration Association. The river restoration group works to improve the water quality in the Elkhart River Watershed, including the Goshen Dam Pond.

The auction will take place from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. on the courthouse lawn. Photos of the rain barrels for sale can be seen on the website www.elkhartriverrestorationassociation.org/.

‘Chalk the Walk’

First Fridays organizers invite children to share their artistic talents and inspiration via sidewalk chalk. “Chalk the Walk” will take place from 6 to 8 p.m. on the courthouse sidewalks. Children can draw pictures, write inspirational thoughts, and play hopscotch or foursquare.

Jump Rope Challenge

Children and adults are invited to participate in the IU Health Jump Rope Challenge along East Lincoln Avenue. The event runs from 5 to 8 p.m. All participants will receive a free jump rope.

At Brethren church

At Goshen City Church of the Brethren, ice cream will be served free of charge. Also, starting at 5:30 p.m. at the church, Goshen Noon Kiwanis members will have their second-ever “Cornhole Tournament to Eliminate Maternal Neonatal Tetanus.” First prize is $200 and second prize is $100. The cost to register is $40 per team for those registering at the event.

Fundraiser

Goshen Firefighters Local 1443 will have beer for sale on East Washington Street. Proceeds go to a benefit fund for local firefighter Scott Thomas, who has been diagnosed with cancer, and his family.
