WOODSTOCK — The city of Woodstock is continuing the patriotic theme for the month tonight in downtown with a special AmericaFest: Salute to the Troops celebration.

Since the First Friday Live hit on the Fourth of July, the city decided to move the celebration to tonight, said Kyle Bennett, director of Tourism and Visitors Center Operations for the city.

The event will celebrate the spirit of America in Downtown Woodstock.

Among the politicians who will be in town for the event is David Perdue, who is seeking Georgia’s open U.S. Senate seat in a runoff for the Republican nomination against Jack Kingston in the July 22 election.

Perdue will stop in Woodstock as part of his statewide bus tour at 6:30 p.m. at Fire Stone Wood Fired Pizza & Grille on Chambers Street, his campaign announced.

Other events include live music featured on the sidewalks in front of Seven Arrow and Cupcakelicious, and the Jason Connelly Band will be playing at Fire Stone Wood Fired Pizza and Grill’s patio from 7 to 10 p.m.

At Maxwell’s Cigar Bar, Douglas Cameron will be singing in front of the store from 6 to 11 p.m. and artists will be set up in front of Blue Frog Imports.

Several stores will offer discounts to veterans and active duty military.

Cupcakelicious will be featuring red, white and blue decorated cakeballs, with strawberry, blueberry and birthday cake flavors. Also, birthday cake cupcakes will be sporting red, white and blue edible stars. The whole store will be suitably decked out in flags, bunting and patriotic colors.

For more event information call (770) 924-0406.
