Willimantic 3rd Thursday Street Fest

The 3rd Thursday of the month from May-September Downtown Willimantic comes alive between 6-9 p.m. To check out a particular 3rd Thursday go to their website. Five blocks of entertainment, shopping, and food. 

We'll save a parking spot for you if you approach our Historic Downtown eastbound on Main Street or via High Street. Have some dinner, duck into a downtown merchant for some AC and shopping, dance in the streets, and grab refreshments at the Beer & Wine Garden.

It sounds like a fun evening to me.
