Thursdays on First & 3rd taking the week off for Rochesterfest
Organizers of Rochester's Thursdays on First & 3rd are asking the community to head over to Rochesterfest this week instead.
“The Rochester Downtown Alliance is supportive of Rochesterfest’s relocation and wishes the organization the greatest success this year,” said Jenna Bowman, the executive director of RDA, in a news release.
This is the only week through August that Thursdays on First & 3rd will not be held. According to RDA, conversations about taking the week off began in 2014 when organizers of Rochesterfest first started looking for a new location.
This is Rochesterfest's first year at Soldiers Memorial Field Park. The annual festival was forced to move from its previous spot in front of the Mayo Civic Center due to renovations on the facility.
Thursdays on First & Third will return to its normal schedule on July 2 with the first ever "Themed Thursdays." The theme will be "Red, White, & Blue" in honor of the Fourth of July holiday.
