It's the kickoff to the 2018 Wind Down season with a celebration of Moms in May! Jill Fulton Band is performing live. Grab dinner from Bella's Bites or Pretzel and Pizza Creations Hagerstown. The vendors have Mom in mind with plenty of shopping options to find that special gift. For the kids there's a bounce house, coloring, corn hole and balloon animals with UncleBean! - "The Life of the Party".

NEW THIS YEAR: Bring your own Wind Down mug from a previous event and skip the fee...or pay $7 for a mug and your first drink ticket. Whichever option you choose, stop by the Wind Down table in the Maryland Theatre courtyard with your ID to get your wristband.
