August’s Artwalk makes a nod to Louisiana’s August heat by keeping all the fun in one cool place! On Thursday, August 5 from 5-8 pm, historic Texas Avenue is going to be on display, and all roads will lead to 1110 Texas Avenue, the home of C&C Mercantile and Lighting
C & C Mercantile is filled with interesting items.
There, you will enjoy live music, artists and other vendors, coffee from Special Reserve Coffee Roasters, as well as the Uneeda Taco food truck, Streetcar Snoballs and other beverages.
Tour guide Robert Trudeau doing his history thing.
Robert Trudeau will be hosting short (10-15 min.) history tours that will whet your appetite about the many remarkable stories of Texas Avenue. Haley Brooke will be strumming tunes to keep you in the summertime mood, architect Mischa Farrell will give you the chance to Sketch the City and Liz will be there for History in 5 to talk about some of the changes coming to the Avenue.
