The music coming from the lawn of the Bing Rooming House Museum could be heard all the way downtown as the community checked out the second annual A Taste of Laura Street event.
Promising food, forks and fun, the event combined live music with mouth-watering cuisine and an art gallery filled with pieces from local artists. A band played all night long and folks sampled special treats like ribs, collard green egg rolls and puddings on the Rooming House’s lawn.
Armbands for the tasting experience were $10 and 150 residents purchased the bands in support of the event. The museum was open to the public and the upstairs was filled with a variety of art ranging from acrylic canvas pieces to 3D artworks.
Improvement League President William Thomas Jr. offered a special thanks to the City of Plant City and Beasley Media Group for helping acquire a stage for the event.
