The Greater Belhaven Neighborhood Foundation (GBF) is pleased to announce that 16th annual street festival, Bright Lights Belhaven Nights, (BLBN) is scheduled for Saturday, August 13, 2022, 5:00 p.m.—10:00 p.m., in the historic Belhaven neighborhood. This family fun event presented by Mississippi Baptist Medical Center, C Spire, The Manship and Southern Beverage Company will feature live music on two stages, as well as local, handmade craft vendors and the most delicious food and beverages from Mississippi’s restaurants and breweries.
This year’s featured headliner, Colony House, with their authentic approach to independent rock and roll, Nashville-born outfit Colony House has spent over a decade building their career on virtues that seem to seldom remain: honesty, accessibility, and family. Their 2014 debut “When I Was Younger” included the instantly popular single “Silhouettes,” which became the #1 most played track on Sirius XM’s Alt Nation for four months straight. The band has performed their songs for worldwide audiences with two appearances on both Late Night with Seth Meyers and CONAN, as well as the Today Show, VH1’s “Morning Buzz,” and MTV Live.
