Two fun local events are back: Downtown After Five and the Montford Music & Arts Festival. Here's the scoop from the Citizen-Times (Asheville resident Harry Anderson to appear at the Montford fest!):

Check any city map, and Montford Avenue and Lexington Avenue never quite connect in Asheville. But there's a sort of musical intersection happening this weekend, as both city streets host lively music parties, each sure to pull big crowds.

Downtown After Five is back for another season's worth of free shows, once again presented on Lexington Avenue near the Interstate 240 overpass and presented by the Asheville Downtown Association. The first show is Friday night.

A few blocks away, the seventh annual Montford Music and Arts Festival returns Saturday on historic Montford Avenue between Cullowhee and Waneta Streets. There's lot of entertainment throughout the day, plus an appearance by Montford's most famous resident, comic and magician Harry Anderson, star of the long-running TV sitcoms “Night Court” and “Dave's World.”
