Weather conditions should be much improved today during the monthly Edmonds Third Thursday Art Walk.
Last month's event went on despite snowy and icy conditions that caused many downtown shop owners to skip the event, including Third Thursday creator Manya Vee of Manya Vee Selects, who started the event with her husband a decade ago.
Today's art walk is on tap fom 5 to 8 p.m. at various locations downtown.
Visitors to the art walk will be able to partake in arts, entertainment, tastings and demos.
Entertainment will include the Edmonds Community College jazz band at ArtsNow Gallery, Solar Jazz and '60s tunes at Fabric of Life, watercolor demonstration at Aria Studio Gallery and a drawing demonstartion at Edward Jones. As usual, The Loft will have live music at 8 p.m. after the event concludes.
Manya Vee Selects has a printable guide of all the activities and locations planned for the Art Walk, and even has a map.
