WOODBURY — What’s On in Woodbury is planning to fill the town with music with an all-day Make Music Day festival on Friday, June 21.

There will be a salute to sunrise featuring Woodbury Poet Laureate David Bibbey and bagpiper Bill Geddes. The event will be filmed and uploaded on Facebook and Instagram.

There will be a pop-up drum bucket session for preschoolers and an adult from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. at the Woodbury Public Library, 269 Main St. South.

There will be an open microphone event from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on the North Green gazebo, 11 Main St. South.

To end the day, some members of the Woodbury Ukulele Band will perform at 6 p.m. at Hollow Park on Hollow Road. The ukulele band will be followed by a performance of the seven-piece Latin rhythm band, Bentutu, at 6:30 p.m.

After the performance, families will get the chance to send a floating lantern out on Hollow Pond, with lanterns and decorations provided by WOW.

There will also be performances by musicians throughout town at various venues, such as the Library Lawn.
