CHAMPAIGN -- Friday nights are now filled with music. It is called Friday Night Live.

Tonight was the first night for the event. Mayor Don Gerard kicked off the evening with a balloon release then it was time to boogie.

People could choose from three different locations of music and there was something for everyone.  One location had Dixie land music while another had acoustic. Belly dancers even took over one street.

This is not a one night thing. Friday Night Live is happening every Friday until September. It runs from 6:00pm to 8:00pm.
