Thursday Night Out! The Downtown Waterfront is OPEN!

Gig Harbor, WA – Did you know that Gig Harbor’s Downtown Waterfront is a happening place? Nearly 50 retailers, art galleries and restaurants are participating in Thursday Night Out on the second Thursday of each month. Many feature special offers, activities, demonstrations and plenty of fun for all. Participating businesses can be found on the waterfront as far south as 7 Seas Brewing and Gig Harbor Audio; as far north as Morso, Anthony’s and Peacock Hill Gallery, and everywhere in between. The “Get Around Gig Harbor” Trolley operates on Thursday nights to make it easier to visit businesses throughout. The next Thursday Night Out will take place on Thursday, July 10th.

Thursday Night Out, presented by the Downtown Waterfront Alliance, features plenty of live entertainment. The Alliance would like to acknowledge and thank all the entertainers who have participated so far. In June, Rick Gonzalez with Ike Sutton; Mary Farr; Dusty Hays; Luke Stanton; Paul Kara Ross; Pop Star Kids USA; Josh Brulotte and Erik Mickleson.
