The 2015 Thursday Picnic Season Here!

Yes, it’s that time of the year again – Thursday Picnic Time! Many join in The 3rd Street Courtyard every Thursday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. during the warmer months. Patrons come to taste delicious food. Or bask in the rays from the sun on their skin. Or enjoy the sweet sounds of live music in the background. Or remember that feeling that this is the best lunch break ever.  Whatever the reason, the Thursday Picnics in the Courtyard have been growing in popularity since its inception four years ago.

Main Street Marion is enthusiastic about this chance to showcase a downtown venue, highlight nearby diners, and draw in more people to the center of our City. Table chalk is purposefully left at all tables, so that you can to leave your remarks and input before you go!!
