Have you been downtown during a First Friday Art Walk? I have and it is one of the coolest downtown events we have. I enjoy wandering in and out of stores to view the artwork and to talk with the owners and artists. Some locations even serve food and wine!
I’m really looking forward to this Friday’s Art Walk (February 2nd). We are meeting a group of friends, along with their kids, for dinner at The Burger Saloon and then we will all join the Art Walk. I’m happy the kids will see a lively and interesting downtown, with its variety of shops and businesses who are working to support local artists.
