September 1, 2010, Frederick, MD - Get the In the Street celebration started early with a night of music, food, beer and wine gardens and the chance to support a local charity. Light the Creek is the perfect way to get ready for the In the Street celebration! This year’s event will be located at the Carroll Creek Amphitheatre from 6:00pm to 9:00pm. The festivities will offer a live performance by Spyro Gyra’s Scott Ambush. There will also be beer and wine gardens with a $3 cover charge for guests 21years or older with a valid ID.

This year Maryland Lottery will be joining us for an on site lottery drawing. At 8:00pm there will be a pick 3, pick 4 and a Bonus Match 5 drawing. Get a chance to see the lottery process live and try your luck for a chance to win.

Light the Creek also includes the opportunity to support Frederick’s local non- profit organizations. $5 tokens can be purchased and donated to your favorite local charity. Be sure to bring your wallet for the chance to give back to the community while enjoying the live entertainment of Scott Ambush.

Known for being the talented bass player of Spyro Gyra, Ambush has developed his own style of rock inspired jazz. He has taken the influence of classics like Jimi Hendrix and Led Zeppelin and blended it with the jazz sounds of Stanley Clark and Return to Forever. His performance will surely set the tone for a weekend full of festivities and great entertainment.

You won’t want to miss great company, entertainment and charity at the Light the Creek event on Friday September 10th. And, what a perfect way to gear-up for In the Street on Saturday, September 11th in downtown Frederick!
