Alton Main Street has announced the kick off of the 5th season of the Night Market on Broadway to be held every Thursday night from July 16th through September 3rd.

To allow for more social distancing, this year the night market will be held in the large parking lot on the side of the Jacoby Arts Center.

Executive Director Sara McGibany tells the Big Z how the idea for the Night Market came about 5 years ago.
