Street Dances are a Summer Tradition in the Mountains. Get ready to kick up your heels or just enjoy watching a long time mountain tradition: Mountain Street Dances. Held on a regular schedule in a variety of mountain cities during the summer months the Mountain Street Dances are a favorite event for both locals and visitors alike.

Two annual favorites are held in Hendersonville and Waynesville. This week Hendersonville features the band Appalachian Fire and Dancers J. Creek Cloggers. Hendersonville's Street Dances have been a tradition for 92 years. The Street Dances highlight local mountain heritage music and dance on Monday evenings during the summer. Bring a chair and sit back, relax and enjoy mountain heritage music and dancing from 7:00-9:00PM. Seating area opens after 5:30.

At Waynesville's Mountain Street Dance you can put on your cloggin' and square dancin' shoes and enjoy an old-fashioned mountain hoedown. Live mountain music, demonstrations and instruction by local clogging teams are included. Refreshments are available for purchase. Limited bleacher seating available so feel free to bring a chair or blanket for the Courthouse lawn.

Quote of the month for August:
“Remember to be gentle with yourself and others. We are all children of chance and none can say why some fields will blossom while others lay brown beneath the August sun. Care for those around you. Look past your differences. Their dreams are no less than yours, their choices no more easily made. And give, give in any way you can, of whatever you posses. To give is to love. To withhold is to wither. Care less for your harvest than for how it is shared and your life will have meaning and your heart will have peace.”... Kent Nerburn

Caleb Johnson from Asheville wins American Idol
Asheville NC native Caleb Johnson proves that persistence AND talent counts as he won the 2014 American Idol designation. Johnson's consistent performances were key to moving up through this year's weeks of competition. With a voice and style that combine the best of rock and pop his genuine and caring nature (well, he IS from Asheville) shine through to make him a favorite with young and old.

American Idol took a step up this year with the addition of Harry Connick Jr., one of the best musicians and musical artists this country has ever produced. Not to mention his acting, song-writing, support of family and hometown (New Orleans), humor and - OK - in the looks department it doesn't get much better. But hopefully his influence has brought more emphasis to the previously tedious show to musical skills, artistry and maybe even a little originality. Like Caleb Johnson.

Saluda NC a Perfect Example of Small Business Saturday
November 30 - The 4th Annual Saluda Small Business Saturday. This year's event, falls between black Friday and cyber Monday on Thanksgiving weekend. Created in 2009 to recognize small businesses as the heart of the American economy, Small Business Saturday has become a boon to independent retailers. Last year over 100 million consumers came together in cities across the country to "shop small" and celebrate all that small local businesses do for their communities. Saluda NC perfectly represents "small town USA" with a Main Street comprised entirely of small independent businesses. "Just like good wine reflects the flavor of the grapes in the region where they are grown, local small businesses reflect the beauty and character of their communities.
