The kickoff of Imagine Hagerstown, the new month-long music and arts festival, took place on Friday.
The music, the artwork and the good food are what brought people out Friday night for the kick off of Imagine Hagerstown. Imagine Hagerstown will have events and artists performing every weekend for the rest of June. To kick off things Friday night, “The Get Right Band” from Asheville, Nc. took the stage. This is the first year for Imagine Hagerstown after the city decided to move away from Blues Fest. But the city staff remain optimistic.
“I feel that Hagerstown is emerging more and more into what it can be. It’s manifesting, right I hope this is a reflection of that and an impetus for that to happen more,” said Kitty Clark, community events coordinator for the city of Hagerstown.
Imagine Hagerstown continues Saturday with more music and belly dance performances.
