It occurred to me that it’s already the First Friday of May already, and that means downtown will be swarming with Art Walk folks tonight! Shop, stores and galleries in both Downtown and the Old Mill will be open from 5 to 9 tonight, featuring special art exhibits and many include live music and/or refreshments (snacks and wine!).
Deschutes Brewery is back into First Friday as well, featuring Beer and Back-alley BBQ tonight for the evening, with artist Cristina Acosta on hand as well as live music.
And, you can catch the free GETIT shuttle to take you back and forth from downtown Bend to the Old Mill District. The shuttle runs from 5 to 9:30 and leaves from 900 Wall St. beginning at 5. The loop is about an hour and is free for riders, and shuttles leave every half hour.
