Here’s an Idea

Third Thursdays

I’m sure it’s been proposed, but maybe you could shed some light as to why it’s not happening.

In other communities they have “Third Thursday Events” where they close their downtown streets on a certain night of each month and the shop owners stay open and local artisans set up kiosks in the middle of the streets and displays of their art for sale.

They have jazz bands or other kinds of bands and the shop owners have wine and cheese and hors’ douvres.

Why dont we have that here?

We have an incredible arts community.

Can we get to work on it?

It works in Vegas and it works in Naples.  I bet it would be fantastic here from Summer through fall.
