Gather up the children and head over to the Old Courthouse Square in downtown Decatur for the last of this month’s Blue Sky Concerts. Douglas Brake and the Sizzle Hiss Pop Band will be performing from noon until 1 pm. Bring the kids on down for an hour of crazy fun music, singing and dancing. Original songs include a celebration of the sound and smell of cooking bacon and the daily challenge of locating small, misplaced shoes!

Join us on the Square for this special children’s concert- but beware, even the adults will find themselves smiling and singing along!

The Decatur Business Association produces the  Blue sky Concert with presenting sponsor SunTrust Bank. This week’s co-sponsors are Lotus of Life, Kaiser Permanente and Little Shop of Stories.
