|First 'Let's Go Downtown' event seeks participants|
The Downtown Economic Development District, in partnership with the city of Monroe, Department of Community Affairs, is soliciting participants for the first "Let's Go Downtown," art walk and concert, to be held in downtown Monroe. The tentative date for this event is April 5.
"This is an effort to revive downtown as a destination for entertainment and activities for everyone," said Cynthia Crosby, executive director of the DEDD. "It is also an opportunity to highlight downtown businesses, local artists and musicians."
Art will be displayed inside the lobbies of businesses and along street sidewalks. Food and craft vendors will be set up along streets and sidewalks. Desiard Street will be shut down for the event. There will be children's art contests, music and scavenger hunts.
Monroe Mayor Jamie Mayo said, "The revitalization of downtown Monroe is key to the future growth of Monroe. In addition to creating more business opportunities, downtown Monroe must become an ideal location for arts and entertainment. This event will give citizens a taste of what's to come as we bring excitement and culture back to downtown Monroe. This is a great opportunity to show your Monroe pride."
Anyone interested in participating, or becoming a sponsor for this event, or to obtain a vendor form should contact the DEDD at 807-9985.
Musicians who would like to participate should send a copy of their music to DEDD, Executive Tower 141 Desiard Street, Suite 526, Monroe, LA 71201.
