I lived in Roanoke in the late 90s. Left at the end of 2000. It is one of my favorite "big-little" cities. When I lived there, they used to close down a few blocks downtown on Fri/Sat nights and have live bands, food, etc.. It was a blast. One of my favorite memories was seeing Blessid Union Of Souls there, right on the street, performing.

During warmer weather, we still do First Friday's. First Friday of the month is the block party downtown.

We just had the Christmas Parade, it's usually held (by accident) the coldest and wettest day of the year.

Here's a good site to check the festival schedule in town or close.

Corned Beef & Co downtown is a great resturant. Good food and atmosphere.

I'm a little late to the party but there is a hoiday celebration called Dickens of a Christmas hosted downtown every year before Christmas. My dad loves it, people roast chestnuts and there are horse and buggy rides around downtown.
