Last year, the newly constructed College Avenue Promenade, a space for public events, gatherings, and outdoor dining was opened to the community. Since this time, the town, Downtown Blacksburg, Inc., and many other community organizations have been hosting public events such as Steppin’ Out, Blacksburg Chocolate Festival, the International Street Fair, Welcome Back Student Concerts, Movie Previews at the Lyric, and various arts related programs such as Sidewalk Stage.
If you could close the road to vehicle traffic for a day, or even a couple of hours at lunch time or on a weekend what kind of events or activities would you like to see held on the College Avenue Promenade? Take that question a little further. Do you know of organizations or individuals who would be interested in programming that space for either a one time event or regularly occurring activity? If not, that’s ok, let us know your greatest thoughts and ideas for the space.
