With Grand Avenue bridge construction in full swing, downtown businesses are hoping a new monthly event will bring out locals and visitors alike.
Called “Glen-A-Palooza,” it takes the second Friday time slot formerly occupied by Glenwood’s art walk and adds a whole series of activities to the mix.
“We really wanted to see an event downtown and remind people that we’re still open for business,” said Chrissy Manes of Providence Apothecary, who spearheads the event.
“I get a lot of feedback from my customers that businesses don’t stay open late enough,” she added. “The whole idea is to introduce people to stores that they’ve never even been in before.”
Glen-A-Palooza debuted last month to what Manes described as an amazing turnout.
“I’ve had really great feedback,” she said. “Businesses had a lot of traffic come through their doors.”
This month takes an extra step by closing Cooper Avenue between Seventh and Eighth streets.
