Hang out downtown for Acker Night

It officially starts at 5:30, I would suggest we meet at the corner of Gurley and Montezuma in front of St. Michel's Hotel. The parking fills up fast, so if we get here early we will guaranteed to find a spot. I would suggest carpooling too. We could always grab a bite to eat before the festivities. If you haven't attended it gets crazy busy, they shut down Gurley and al the participating stores, restaurant, etc have a band or an individual musical talent play. The square will be lit up for Christmas. It would be difficult to drag a tripod around.

Known simply as "Acker Night" in the Prescott community, The J.S. Acker Musical Showcase has become a highlight of the holiday season and one of Prescott's favorite hometown events. Over 100 musical groups performing for three hours in and around the Prescott downtown area. This free, annual, holiday event showcases the many talented musicians in the Prescott, Arizona area in a most unique way. More than 80 downtown businesses open their doors to host musical groups of every genre, turning Prescott's downtown into a veritable smorgasbord of entertainment for the thousands of patrons who come out to enjoy the event each year. 5:30-8:30 pm,[masked]-7336.

    A little disappointing. Way too crowded and not much music.

      I tend to wander off :) and the fact that there were SO many people there made it even easier to get lost!

    It was fun hanging out with everyone and having dinner at the palace. There were so many of us we kept losing people. Not the best Acker Night I have gone to, less acts and less good ones. Had fun with our group though. My night pics need work! Oh and it was cold!

      I tried to find a parking spot at 6, but couldn't, so I decided to head home. Have a great night!

    I will be going with a friend of mine. This will be my first time meeting everyone so if someone doesn't mind my texting them so I know where to meet that would be great. This will also be my first time going to Acker night.

    It will be hard to take pics with the crowds so I am just going to bring my little point and shoot.

    Yeah, I think some of us should get there early and have dinner some where. It really does get crazy busy. It's a great time of the year and if you haven't been to it, you really don't want to miss it. If you have been there, then you will probably be going back again.
