Music in the Streets returns to downtown Washington tonight — weather permitting.

The street festival begins at 6 p.m. and concludes at 9 p.m.

Scheduled to perform are The Southerners Band, which plays classic rock; the Tarheel Troubadour (Paul Bailey); Kara Carlson, alternative rock; The Both, a progressive folk rock band; Men of Faith, Christian music; Joey Brinn and Southern Accent, rock ‘n’ roll and Chuck Phillips and CAPS, a mix of old and new songs.

Paul Bailey — the Tarheel Troubadour — is a retired truck driver, part-time musician and a former Marine. Kara Carlson is a Music in the Streets veteran who has a following in the region. The Both includes Craig Newton, who has several Washington connections.

Down East Rods & Classic Cars members will display several of their vehicles.

Several organizations are scheduled to conduct raffles, including Daughters for Dads and Angels ‘n’ Camo. Other organizations will have a presence at the festival.

Funnel cakes will be sold during Music in the Streets, according to an email from the Washington Harbor District Alliance, organizer of the street festival.

Music in the Streets is held the third Friday of each month from April through October.
