Chicopee Downtown GetDown underway

The two-day event has begun in Chicopee!

CHICOPEE, Mass. (WWLP) – The two-day Downtown GetDown event is already drawing crowds to downtown Chicopee Friday.

For the third year in a row, Chicopee Center is closed off to drivers and streets are filled with vendors, people, and entertainment. This year’s Downtown GetDown event is scheduled for 12:00 to 9:00 p.m. Friday and Saturday.

Germaine Korziniowski told 22News she has never attended an Downtown GetDown event before, but wants to see these events more often.

“Oh, I would love to see it more than once a year,” Korziniowski said. “Maybe in the Spring, a spring festival or a summer festival with all the vegetables.”

Saturday’s celebration will kick off with a 5K race at 9:00 a.m. To enter the race, you can  register Saturday morning from 7:30 to 8:45 a.m.

The two-day event will feature multiple musical performances, including sets by Polka legend Lenny Gomulka,  Friday’s headliner, country cover band Trailer Trash, and Saturday’s headliner,  Darik n’ the Fun Bags.
