SoVaNow.com / August 30, 2012
The sunny days of summer are beginning to shorten, and the kids are back in school. But that doesn’t mean the good times have to end just yet! The Halifax Village Business Association will be turning the heat back up on Saturday, Sept. 15.

The next installment of the successful Jam Series will feature the local talent of The Hot Damn Band. They will be plugging into the Halifax Farmers Market from 6-10 p.m.

As usual there will be food, beer and wine available. Food vendors will be Breedlove’s Seafood and Thomas Pugh. Local craft vendors will be offering their wares and there will be play areas for the kids. This particular Saturday Night Jam will also feature a live auction with goods from Halifax businesses and artisans. Additionally, the HVBA is holding a raffle for a Henry Golden Boy.22 Lever Action Rifle. Raffle tickets are available for $5 at local Halifax businesses and will also be available for purchase at the September 15 event until 9:30 p.m. The winner will be announced at 9:45 p.m. and the winner need not be present to win.

Admission is $5 with children 12 and under free. There is truly something for the entire family at the Saturday Night Jams. Bring a lawn chair and your dancing shoes and keep the summer fun going.
