Make It Manchester Third Thursday Street Closures

By Seth Kinker,

If you are planning to visit the Make it Manchester Third Thursday Events this summer in downtown Manchester, beware of street closures.

After recently receiving a grant to continue the Make it Manchester Events in downtown Manchester, the village council voted last week, May 7, to close Adrian Street from Main to Ockrow on the third Thursday from May to October from 2/3pm to 9pm.

Village President Pat Vaillencourt made the council aware that if any more events or activities were to be added to what is already planned, the village would need to be made aware for liability purposes.

The events begin May 16 and there is a complete program of various entertainment and different activities planned for this summer that can be found on their Facebook page “Make it Manchester”.

Adrian Street will include live entertainment and other family-friendly activities.

“They’re tying it to Thursday nights because of the Farmer’s Market and gazebo concerts so people will have a lot to do downtown, focusing quite a bit on kids, Gazebo Concerts and other fun things,” said Vaillencourt.
