Glen Ellyn residents will get the chance to end their summer with a bang and a bite at Friday's Sounds on the Street festival.

The free event takes place on Main Street between Hillside Avenue and Duane Street, and will feature live music. Guests also will get the chance to purchase food and drinks from several restaurants along that stretch and take them outside to enjoy during the celebration.

"It's a pretty unique event because we bring out the music. It's a free event and you can go in and sample or just visit your favorite restaurant and bring whatever you like to eat or drink out (into) the street," Alliance of Downtown Glen Ellyn Executive Director Carol White said.

Guests will be able to enjoy food and beverages from Blackberry Market, Tap House Grill, Santa Fe, Cab's Wine Bar Bistro, Shannon's Irish Pub and fire + wine.

"When else can you go inside a restaurant and bring it out into the street?" White said. "It's a great chance to tour and taste all the different offerings."

Main Street will be closed between Hillside and Duane at 5 p.m. Glen Ellyn's School of Rock will have two acts perform: the kids' band will play at 7 p.m., followed by the adult band.

Local Favorite will start about 8 p.m. The event ends at 10:30 p.m.

Guests who buy $5 souvenir cups can get free soda at some restaurants. Paper and plastic can only be brought out to the street from the restaurants, according to the alliance's website.

No alcohol from elsewhere is allowed.

"It's just a simple, great end-of-summer celebration," White said.
