I can’t believe July is over! Summer is winding down and students are getting ready to go back to school. For Champaign-Urbana, that means Campustown is getting ready to welcome back thousands of college students. Don’t worry though; you still have a few more weeks to enjoy the peaceful streets before the crowd comes in! So get out and explore the cute shops and restaurants downtown, while receiving the best deals in town.  There are only two weeks left of 13 Thursdays. Check out a list of the participating stores and restaurants below.

If you are looking for a fun night with the family, be sure to head downtown on Friday night. The sidewalks along Main Street will be filled with color this weekend! Come on out for the 2nd Annual Friday Night Live Kids Sidewalk Chalk Contest. This free event is the perfect way for your kids to show off their art skills in the heart of the city. The contest starts at 6:30 PM in front of Big Grove Tavern.  

HAVE SOME FUN IN THE CITY WHILE THE SUMMER IS STILL VISITING OUR TOWN!
