If you missed Thursday's Downtown last year...I've got exciting news!

One of my absolute, favorite events is Thursdays Downtown.  Last year, as we were all dealing with the pandemic, I realized how much I truly missed this fun event that happens every week in the summer.  If you missed it as much as me, I've got good news!  Keep scrolling to see all of the events that the Rochester Downtown Alliance have planned for this summer.  I've got the entire list below just for you.

Do you know of another fun event that is happening in the area?

I'd love to hear about it!  Send me a message over on my Facebook Page - Jessica On The Radio - or on Instagram.

Listen to Jessica Williams weekdays from 6 am until 10 am on the Y-105FM Early Morning Show with James and Jessica.
