A Day In The Life, Post-COVID

by | Jul 1, 2021

The heat of the day didn’t slow down the dancing at the Juneteenth Celebration.


We interrupt your browsing for a little News of Davidson dance of joy: Summer is here with bells on!

Let’s take one day, Saturday, June 19, one of the hottest days of the year in these parts. Town residents and visitors were undaunted by the temperatures in the 90s.

As usual, Davidson Farmers Market was overflowing with fresh veggies and fruit (the peaches!), flowers, fish, baked goods, salsa, cheese, and honey—not to mention the tasty treats of a food truck. Hundreds of shoppers, young and old, lined up for their favorite market goodies.

As the market was winding down, the grounds of Ada Jenkins Center were filling up, as people gathered to celebrate Juneteenth, or Emancipation Day, commemorating the liberation of enslaved people in the United States of America.

Before sundown, a jazz band lured friends and neighbors to the Town Green. All the while, shoppers and strollers continued to fill the downtown sidewalks, stopping in for books, gifts, a summer frock, camping or glamping gear, ice cream, coffee, and breakfast, lunch, or dinner.

News of Davidson welcomes and anticipates a carefree, outdoor summer—for the vaxxed and the masked—and we plan to keep you informed on what’s coming up. Because that’s what we do.
