The Magic Pipers will kick off the second season of Friday Night on White on Friday, April 28. Presented by White Street Brewing Co., the free outdoor concert will take place along South White Street in historic downtown Wake Forest from 6 to 9 p.m.
Friday Night on White is typically offered on the second Friday night of each month from April through September.

Food and refreshments will be available for purchase at several downtown restaurants. A variety of food and dessert trucks will also be on site in the parking lot of Fidelity Bank at 231 South White Street and along Owen Avenue. Food and dessert trucks scheduled to participate on April 28 include American Meltdown, Bam Pow Chow, Charlie’s Kabob Grill on Wheels, Cousins Maine Lobster, Fuzzy’s Empanadas, Kona Ice, Lumpy’s Ice Cream, Stuft, Sweet Traditions, VFW Chuckwagon, and Virgil’s Jamaica.
