Start your excitement for Speed Street

Posted By on Thu, May 26, 2011 at 2:40 PM

Every year I look forward to one particular weekend to kick off my summer ... thank goodness that time is here.

This weekend, thousands of fans will come to experience one of the best festivals here in the Queen City, and that is the Food Lion Speed Street.

Speed Street might be the perfect set-up. Each day, you can expect non-stop entertainment on two stages for free. Walking around the streets of Charlotte couldn't be more fun while looking at tons of interactive displays you might not see anywhere else, including getting your picture taken with the show cars of NASCAR and Q&A sessions with the racers.


I always thought I was one of the biggest concert lovers, but this year's nightly concerts are sure to bring in the crazies. Tonight, Pat Green will take the stage — and I can already hear the screaming fans. Friday night will be a tough choice. On one stage Everclear will be performing, but if you're a little more country then head over to the Coca-Cola stage to see Josh Turner. And on Saturday night, Clay Walker has a performance to round up the weekend concerts.

Each step you take you will find a different vendor getting you to try their products. Oh, and the best part? You can walk around with a nice cold beer in your hand. One of the festival's sponsors is Miller Lite so there will be plenty of beer stands at every turn.

A little bit of everything is offered at Speed Street. The carefree environment is full of fun people cutting loose and having a great time. The non-stop party is all day and night starting at 12 p.m. continuing until 11 p.m.
