The Decatur Arts Festival isn’t for a few more weeks, but the big poster unveiling is happening Thursday evening.
It starts at 5:30 p.m. on the Square in Downtown Decatur. The city says everyone attending will get a free 2015 poster. It’s part of several pre-festival events happening this month to celebrate the arts.
On Friday, May 15, a free Decatur Lantern Parade begins at 8 p.m. Participants are invited to make a lantern and then march to the Square from the Color Wheel Studio at 508 E. Howard Ave.
There’s also an ArtWalk on Friday, May 22 from 5 p.m. – 10 p.m. It’s described as “Decatur’s largest one-night gallery event – now with a DJ and fire twirler! Stroll around town to see exhibits at various shops, galleries, and restaurants and enjoy complimentary snacks and drinks.”
