Beloit’s downtown has a new sound

BELOIT – Cultural events and community outreach have been enhanced by a new downtown sound system.

People come downtown in the evening to walk their dogs or push strollers along the street and listen to music playing over the speakers, and parade announcements can be heard along the entire route. Open Mic Night, band performances, car shows and other events have benefited from improved sound.

A grant helped cover the cost of the system.
