The longstanding summer street festival Third Thursday returns this month.
The event is held throughout the summer on North Street. The city's main thoroughfare is completely shut down and filled with vendors, food, music, and entertainment. It brings thousands of people to the city's downtown every third Thursday of the month from May until September.
