Shoppers can take a Lovers Stroll down the gay strip on Wednesday, Feb. 6 during the third monthly First Wednesday sponsored by the Cedar Springs Merchants Association.
Participating retailers will offer two-for-one specials and other discounts, according to Merchants Association President Scott Whittall.
There will be live music from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. outside the Sue Ellen’s patio for the Valentine’s Day-themed event.
The retailers will be decorated with balloons and display First Wednesday posters, Whittall said. They will include Walgreens, Nuvo, Outlines, Buli, The Round-Up, Union Jack, Tape Lenders, Hunky’s, Obscurities, Alexandres, Skivvies, JR’s and Sue Ellen’s.
The Andrea Dawson Band, Robert Olivas, Mel Arizpe, Beckah Kubicek and Junye Butler are scheduled to perform.
First Wednesday was started by the Merchants Association in December as a way to increase foot traffic on the strip, where some retailers have struggled in recent years.
