The USA Karate Championships were held over the weekend in the Bi-Lo center.
Lady Antebellum appeared in concert at the Bi-Lo center on Saturday. That was a very warm day, and the iced tea appearing as murals on these trucks was appropriate. All the trucks had their APUs running to keep the cabs cool, which was a good thing because they didn’t need to keep all the main engines idling.
See a previous truck mural on this same street by Denton.
The warm weather has created surprise afternoon popup thunderstorm patterns in the past few days. Although there was some hail on Saturday, there was no major wind damage. Here, a storm front leaves town, and a rainbow appears as the sun peeks through again.
Last week the Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus came to the Bi-Lo Center. This was a popular regional school attraction, and a block of East Elford Street shown here was blocked off and served as special bus parking for the duration of a show. This is a convenient place to park large vehicles during Bi-Lo center events, such as this previous event.
Light trails mark the traffic rolling into town from 385 on a rainy evening. Many of them are heading toward the Bi-Lo center for an event – some of them are turning into the Church Street parking garage on the right. The Bi-Lo center is hosting a Monster Jam event tonight and tomorrow night.
Â« day before | today | day after Â» Personally I don’t attend many of the events at the Bi-Lo Center. However, I am in the minority because a lot of people attend the events. For this photo blog it important to include a photo of the Bi-Lo center given it’s unique circular construction and it’s prominent stamp on the look and feel of downtown Greenville.
