It was the first Third Thursday Street Festival of the summer and close to 3000 folks showed up to shop, eat, and visit with old friends in downtown historic Sheridan. Main Street was blocked off to all but foot traffic and vendors displaying their wares.
Dixie Johnson, Sheridan County's Chamber of Commerce Directors says part of the credit goes to the great weather.
This is the fourth year of the event and there was something for everyone. An artists' reception featuring the work of the Sheridan Artist Guild members was held in the Sheridan College Main Street Gallery Thursday night. Coordinator Pat Trout
Local work, local talent, and local people, Sheridan has an incredible art community.
The show ends July 26th.
The Gregory boys, Coye, Dalton, and Sam, were on Main Street doing a little business of their own. This trio of brothers had their eyes focused on what folks were wearing on their feet.
These youngsters were shoe shine boys plying their trade to the crowds on Main. At four dollars a shoe shine these boys were doing a bang-up job. Seven year-old Coye Gregory said the tips were pretty good too.
Polished them good they did. Their tip jar was getting pretty full, but that's what the 3rd Thursday Street Festival is all about, giving local merchants in downtown Sheridan the opportunity to showcase their business. Dixie Johnson
The next 3rd Thursday will be held on July 19th.
