For the Opelika
On The Tracks, a night in downtown Opelika full of food, live music and exciting entertainment, is set to return for the 25th time Oct. 19 from 6-11pm.
This outdoor event is intended to help raise funds for Opelika Main Street and promote some of the various local businesses in both Opelika and Auburn. A diverse collection of different restaurants and vendors will be serving food.
This food will be featured in a Food Tasting Trail, where guests will be able to taste a variety of different foods and drinks. Live music performances will accompany them throughout the trail.
Beverages and food will be priced accordingly. Tables for groups or businesses with up to 10 people are also available for purchase.
Opelika Main Street was established in 1987 in order to help revitalize local businesses in Opelika. The organization has allowed for expanded growth and renovation of historic downtown Opelika, along with more aggressive marketing campaigns targeted at helping Opelika remain vibrant and cultured.
Their approach is unique because its guiding principles are different from other redevelopment strategies. These principles include a comprehensive approach, incremental projects, community involvement and a strong public and private partnership.
Early bird tickets for On the Tracks can be purchased for $25 and VIP tickets are $40. Tickets can be purchased online at www.onthetracks.org. There will be a limited supply of tickets available at the Gallery on Railroad, located at 809 S Railroad Ave.
