Sheridan community comes out for last Third Thursday

Posted:

A Sheridan summer tradition comes to a close after another successful year.

The fourth and last Third Thursday Festival of the year wrapped up in Downtown Sheridan Thursday night.

Nearly 200 vendors filled main street selling food, arts and crafts, and other retail items.

Organizers say each event attracts about 3,000 people.

"Definitely an influx in visitation.  Some people travel from the surrounding area.  But it also just gives locals an opportunity to sell their wares, and then definitely a bonus for Main Street," said Third Thursday Festival chairman Chad Franklin.

This is the first year Catherine Wadin brought her business, Pedrock Jewelry, out to the Third Thursday Festivals.  She says the events have helped create more exposure to her products.

"You get to meet a lot of different people around the community.  You get to know people who are starting their own business and give them ideas to start their own business," said Wadin.

Franklin says he hopes to have an archway setup at the Grinnell Plaza entrance in time for next year's festivals.
