Alive After 5 kicks off for the season tonight, Thursday, April 19, in historic Roswell. There will be activities on Canton Street – including outdoor vendors, balloons, four live bands and a free trolley that will drop people off at different locations. Many retailers and art galleries also stay open late.
The event, in its seventh year, draws crowds to Roswell’s historic district and runs every third Thursday through October. Tonight’s event is from 5 to 9 pm.
Various business and community organizations will also be distributing information and giveaways. Roswell's Relay for Life will have "Plum Fun For Relay" in the Plum Tree Village area. They are offering various things for sale, including: car raffle tickets, Relay for Life luminaries, drinks, cookies, face painting, tie-dyed shirts, pizza and lemonade. There will also be an inflatable jumpy house for kids.
Follow signs for offsite parking and ride the trolley to one of several locations along Canton Street.
