Bringing in the New Year Downtown
Downtown's merchants and attractions welcome you in 2011

As we march full steam into another great year for Downtown, we reflect upon past successes and what it is that makes Downtown so special to us all. The journey toward making Downtown greater starts with the community. Every triumph is credited to the people who bring Downtown alive.

From the new business that has just opened its doors, to the families that pack up the car and head Downtown to enjoy another great event, we all have one thing in common, we love Downtown! Downtown is a place where we come together. Young and old, artist and politicians, WE are Downtown.

Our collective success hinges on our spirit of cooperation and our sense of community support. Next time you head Downtown for an event, a bite to eat, or for a business meeting, we encourage you to support the Downtown merchants by stopping in to explore the great products and services that they have to offer. Every penny spent, and every minute shared helps to bring Downtown to new heights.

Downtown's many restaurants and cafe's serve up some of the best cuisine in town. Whether you're in the mood for a po-boy at Poor-boy Lloyd's or a romantic dinner for two at Stroube's Chophouse, Downtown has you covered. With so much to enjoy, there is something for everyone's taste.
