Downtown Report for Week of April 14
WineFest enjoyed great weather and an excellent turn out for its 3rd year, and other downtown businesses benefitted from the droves of people unable to get a wristband for the sold out event. The Listening Room was filled to capacity for Butch Hancock’s return performance.
107’s opening weekend was wall to wall people who came to enjoy the open air bistro’s tacos, sliders, and more. As the weather forecast calls for both Friday and Saturday to be in the mid to upper 70s, 107 anticipates another great turnout. They are open 4pm to 9pm on Wednesdays and Thursdays, 4pm to 10pm on Fridays and from 11am to 11pm on Saturdays. This beer/wine garden with small plates and desserts is a great addition to downtown.
This Saturday at 9am, bring your family and celebrate Easter at the Maxey House. This free event will feature three Easter Egg Hunts, one for ages 0 to 2 starting at 9am. The next is for ages 3 to 5 starting at 9:45, and finally ages 6 to 13 will begin at 10:30. At 11:30 there will be an egg toss for ages 13 and up. The event will also feature lawn bowling, egg/spoon relay, egg decorating and making Easter bonnets.
Carriage House in now open in the space that was previously home to Gene The Jeweler. Open Monday through Saturday 10am to 5pm, Carriage House is Paris’ newest, jewelry, bridal and gift store.
