ROANOKE (WSLS 10) - Some exciting changes will be coming to Thursday nights in downtown Roanoke.

Party in Elmwood is a beach music dance party. This year, a new band will be playing, Blackwater Rhythm and Blues, and Downtown Roanoke Inc. is investing in a new dance floor.

"It's nice having something during the week to bring people downtown, especially during the warmer months," says Jaime Clark with Downtown Roanoke Inc. "People look forward to the beach music, and there's drinks, lots of dancing down there."

Party in Elmwood begins May 28 and ends September 17.
