This month I attended a really fun monthly event in downtown Manchester, CT that everyone of any age can enjoy! First Thursday Imagine Main Street, hosted by MCC on Main brought together an evening market, local business storefronts & restaurants, live music, performance artists and more. Dotted among the famous road race runner sculptures up and down the street were things to do and see. I particularly enjoyed capturing some images of the talented street performing team from Matica Arts. Watching a unicyclist (Joel Melendez) juggle paired with the ribbon twirl stylings of a magical stilt walking Monarch butterfly (Heidi Kirchofer), I saw quite a show and oodles of smiles for all those that stopped by to pick up program guides, visit, and enjoy a night out supporting local arts and businesses.
