The Downtown St. Charles Partnership's new program "STC Live!" continues with live, free entertainment Wednesday and Friday evenings in downtown St. Charles.
Each week, performers are paired with different downtown businesses and the First Street Plaza to create several mini performances.
With the St. Charles Chamber of Commerce's "Cruise Nights" on Tuesdays and St. Charles Park District "Concerts in the Park" Thursdays this summer, the partnership saw an opportunity to also help program activities Wednesdays and Fridays to create regular opportunities for people to frequent the downtown merchants.
"We want this program to promote our businesses, encourage people to explore all that our downtown offers, and expose the many talents of people in our community," said Lynne Schwartz, executive director of the Downtown St. Charles Partnership.
