The Art Walk Block Party returns on Lomax and Peoples streets on Friday from 5:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. but will be held inside.

"Over the last several months, ArtWalk has been held as ArtWalk Block Parties on Lomax Street and Peoples Street. However, due to inclement weather in the forecast, the two street closures have been canceled. Events scheduled for the two streets will be transitioned to indoor locations, including BUS, Fresco, The Point, Commons, and The Exchange. Downtown visitors can find 20+ local vendors, live music, specials, and more inside these business locations," says a press release from organizers.
