The Daily News reports 
This summer Main Street Pineville began a test-run of Main Street Live! on the Courthouse Square in Pineville. Main Street Live! was created to provide nightlife entertainment featuring local music.
MSP scheduled five dates for live music to take place along with local food, drinks and other activities. Due to inclement weather, one of the dates was canceled. The Asa Mills Band headlined the first Main Street Live! event on June 29. This Thursday, Richard Gambrel and Ken Wilson will take the stage. The final two dates will be Aug. 3 and 17.
No admission is charged at the event. Local restaurants allow meals to be carried into the event area. No outside alcohol is allowed in the event, however it is available for purchase in the event area. The event provides a small boost to downtown restaurants.
Main Street Pineville Executive Director Jacob Roan said “As more restaurants plan to open in downtown Pineville, we hope events similar to this become part of our routine in Pineville. Local entrepreneurs are willing to choose downtown Pineville as their home.
It is Main Street Pineville’s job to provide a financial boost through events that bring people into town. Hopefully Main Steet Live! will span out to a 12-15 week series next year and other events will be added to help retain business in Pineville and to continue the growth we are currently experiencing.”
