ELMIRA, N.Y. (WETM) — Alive After Five is coming back to Downtown Elmira at the end of the week.
The first night of Alive After Five will be on Friday, May 19 on Water Street in front of the Chemung Canal Trust Company building. Sunshine & Whiskey and Major Big Time will be performing. Turtle Leaf Café and Heidi Ho’s food truck will be providing food for this event.
Alive After Five is a street music festival hosted by different businesses throughout Elmira on Fridays during the summer. The event runs from 5:05 p.m. until 9 p.m., rain or shine.
Long time Elmira resident, James Delaney has been attending these events for years. “I like to come over because the music is good, it’s well organized and the vendors are good. It’s a good community event; you have young children, college kids, high school kids, senior citizens and everybody just hangs out and likes the music,” says Delaney.
