Fall Art Crawl in Downtown Meridian

Meridian, Miss. Meridian Main Street hosted its Fall Art Crawl in Downtown Meridian this evening.

Art was displayed in fifteen different locations downtown where people could walk by and look at the art and then judge it. They also had live entertainment at some of the businesses. After viewing all the art, people attended a party where door prizes were given away. The event is aimed at bringing people that may not know what goes on downtown.

"We do it in hopes that people will come and visit businesses in downtown that maybe they didn't even know were here, so we are generating interest and excitement," said Meridian Main Street Executive Director Karen Rooney.

Officials hope that by bringing people downtown, they can generate new customers for the businesses located there.
