“This is the fourth year that we’re having June Jam. We had about 450 come out last year and we’re hoping to have at least that many, or more, this year,” said Kira Harris-Braggs, the director of the Main Street Program. “I think the main draw is that it’s a community event. In this economy, especially, people are looking for things to do where they don’t have to spend a lot of money. This opportunity to get together with friends and family at a low cost is very appealing.”
In addition to having games and prizes, June Jam will also include musical entertainment.
Heather Luttrell will perform at 7 p.m. and the band Guilty Pleasures will perform at 8 p.m.
As more people attend June Jam each year, organizers are striving to make certain the event’s offerings also grow.
“Something new this year is Gallery Under the Stars. We will highlight local artists and showcase their talents,” said Harris-Braggs. “People will have a chance to see the wealth and abundance of talent in this area.”
Seating for June Jam, which will be held on Solomon Street in downtown Griffin, begins at 6:30 p.m. The event is free.
