Summer events highlight downtown Angola
Angola’s historic preservation commission puts the town’s Public Square in the spotlight in a series of summer events, starting on August 7 with a walking tour led by preservation commissioners. The tour highlights notable buildings around the downtown square, with stories about the businesses and people who occupied them. The tour begins at 7 p.m. EDT at City Hall and concludes at the Brokaw Theatre, currently undergoing rehabilitation.
Beginning August 24, artfully decorated theater seats from the Brokaw will be on display around the square. The theater donated pairs of seats removed during the rehab for the community art project and fundraiser. The seats will be on display until September 16, when they will be auctioned. Proceeds from the sale will help purchase new holiday decorations for the square.
On September 16 the series ends with the third annual Cruise to the Monument which brings hundreds of vintage vehicles to the Public Square, accompanied by live music and food in a festival atmosphere.
