Around this time every Fall, its not unusual to see large crowds of art and event lovers packing the streets of Government street to Jefferson Hwy. The welcome event called, "White Light Nights" bring a desired boost to sales and traffic to all the varied shops, businesses and restaurants along the strip.
This event works perfectly with the slightly cooler(hopefully) weather, holiday decorations, insane amounts of food everywhere, live music and let's not forget, plenty of art to admire and/or purchase if you're so inclined.
Since its inception in 1998, the event has become more of a yearly festival. Government street, with its sparse bohemian look lends itself perfectly to the night's walkers who admire its esthetic beauty, varied shops and rich atmosphere. plus with the addition of more local music, "White Light Nights“ has become a true festival to look forward to yearly.
Enjoying some fine shopping, art and company begins next Friday, Nov. 16, 6-10 p.m.
