On the heels of a successful summer music concert MainStreet Quincy is gearing up for the Oktober Fest Blues Festival on Oct. 8 and 9.
Jack McLean, Quincy city manager, said the aim is still to bring people to the downtown area to help merchants. He said the Sept. 10 concert featuring local talent, N'Spire, has pleased merchants and vendors.
"All of the vendors sold out. These people are putting out their hard earned money. They are making an investment in our community and we want to help," McLean said.
