Many of the Dragon Street businesses will be extending their hours until 8pm every 1st Thursday of the month in celebration of the arts and community. Their hope is to get the word out about the art scene on Dragon Street - home to various art galleries, antique, imports and floral shops. Future plans for 1st Thursday include live music, outside art exhibits and educational opportunities.
There are a lot of art galleries on the list, so if you have ever found yourself wanting to visit a few, this would be a really cool time. I don't know about you but I tend to hesitate before going into the local galleries - it's always just me and person working the floor. And he/she knows I'm not buying. I don't know what it is, but I enjoy being around other people who are looking at the same pieces. There's such great energy in that room.
