Third Thursday draws large crowd


BROOKVILLE — A large crowd attended the second Third Thursday event held in Gruenig Park at 120 Market St. in downtown Brookville.

A total of two food trucks, 12 mobile vendors and four Market Street businesses participated in the event.

Special to the event were children, who set up booths in the park in order to sell their merchandise.

The Main Street Connection, the group organizing the monthly event, encouraged children, ages 5-12, to create a product to sell at the event.

The Main Street Connection created the opportunity so children could “learn about entrepreneurship and express their artistic abilities in a fun, supportive environment.”

According to Brookville City Manger Jack Kuntz, “the goal of the Third Thursday event is to bring residents – both in Brookville and within the Miami Valley region – to downtown Brookville to experience traditional Americana, hometown charm and all the great retail and commercial operators which call downtown Brookville home.”

The event, held the third Thursday of the month, takes place from 4-7 p.m. through October in Gruenig Park.
