Downtown Oneonta is open late Thursday, November 17th for "Thankful Third Thursday". Participating businesses will host special events, promotions, and/or sales throughout the evening from 5pm - 8pm. Downtown bars and restaurants will offer drink and/or food specials, and all businesses will be collecting canned food and dry goods donations to help those in need in our area this Thanksgiving.
"Third Thursdays provide a great opportunity for businesses in the Oneonta Downtown District to shine," says Dawn Glass, owner of Pink Porch Market, located in downtown Oneonta. "Through these events, we're able to reach a broader audience - an audience often outside of our regular customer bases."
Downtown businesses are typically open during the daytime hours throughout the week. Opening for an evening time event allows those who may not be able to make it to the downtown area any other time except Saturday to enjoy the unique shopping only available in downtown Oneonta.
"Patrons are encouraged to stroll throughout the downtown district during the event," says Dawn. "Of course, folks come out to visit their favorite places, but to explore and discover new ones as well. It's all about fun, community, and the opportunity to show off our charming little corner of the world."
