ROCHESTER, Minn. – On a sunny Thursday morning, the annual Thursdays on first & 3rd kicked off in Rochester.
Thousands of people attend the 13 week event which is organized by the Rochester Downtown Alliance. There are numerous food vendors on hand as well as those who make crafts and play music. But, you don’t need to be living in Rochester to enjoy the free entertainment. “I think it’s the opportunity to be apart of the community downtown and just all the energy that exists,” Executive Director of the Rochester Downtown Alliance Jenna Bowman said.
The event runs until the end of August. Times are 11am-8:30pm.
