Third Thursdays are back!  Punta Gorda Downtown Merchants and the Punta Gorda Chamber of Commerce are pleased to sponsor “The Downtown Punta Gorda Experience” on the Third Thursday of every  month.  This a new venue that takes the place of previous events Gallery Walk, Alive After 5, and Wine Walk, and features art, music, shopping, and food from 5:30-8:30 pm.  Shops and businesses will be open for browsing, and there will be musical entertainment.  Start the evening by picking up your map of participating businesses and their entertainment offerings at Hector House Plaza (across from the Old Courthouse.) Then take a pleasant walk through historic downtown Punta Gorda, visit the shops, and stop in at one of our many fine restaurants for a leisurely meal.  Sea Grape Gallery will be ready to welcome you with complimentary refreshments and artist demonstrations.  Our artists are always available to assist you, and to discuss their artwork and techniques.
