MONROE -- Community Trust Bank and the City of Monroe will present the Downtown RiverMarket today. The “RiverMarket Welcomes the Irish” theme will include authentic Celtic music along with the 2nd annual Home Brew Harvest event featuring demos and samplings by the Fort Miro Brew Masters and craft beer tastings from Choice Brands.
Featured Live Entertainment:
Though rooted in tradition, members of the Emerald Accent traditional Irish band always manage to pass a good time while spreading the “luck o’ the Irish.” Formed in 2010 for the enhancement and development of Irish and Scottish cultures, the band celebrates their love of Celtic influence through energetic, ear-catching live performances. This is an official NELA Celtic Festival Lead-Up event sponsored by Car King.
Buzz and Cluck Naturals specializes in a variety of organic, paleo, gluten-free cooking and cleaning items. Visit their booth for goodies such as organic caramel popcorn, dark chocolate covered almond butter bites, gluten free/paleo-friendly chocolate chip cookies, almond butter, grain-free granola, and tail-wagging homemade natural doggie treats! Also, find all-natural laundry detergent, dish-washing tablets and hand-soap.
Jeremy Thornhill is a Monroe artist locally known for his live music photography and band portraits. Jeremy will debut as a RiverMarket vendor with his most recent creation--a photobooth designed to reproduce the nostalgic, sporadic experience of fun photographs with friends and loved-ones in a controlled environment. Market-goers will receive a print instantly, and they can later go online to view, download and share their full photobooth experience! Jeremy will also offer a large selection of prints featuring nature, people, bands, landscapes, and artistic photography. For a preview of his work, visit www.jeremythornill.net.
