3rd Friday

I see lots and lots of things being talked about! But I don't see anything about the car show. Is the car show still a part if 3rd Friday?

Yes. The cars are now on 2nd Avenue, Downtown Decatur. They block off from approximately Lee Street, from Princess Theatre, to Gordon Parkway. And they start arriving around 5pm.

This is a very good event. For future ref, you best be there by 5, as parking spots get scarce pretty fast. Taking a look at the distance the event covers speaks well of it. Will be glad though when some eating choices get finished. Thanks to all involved in making it happen. Entertainment was super!

Thanks, got a lot of work in it. reason I moved it to 2nd was because of more eating spots. there are quite a few there, they are just a little off the beaten path I will try to have a little more info for next monthes event. Had some family things to deal with this time, didn't have as much time to put out info. any way thanks for coming.
