Thirsty Thursday Memphis. Get some.

MORE changes at Shelby Farms. The new path near The Mayors Lake has been paved. It appears they started working on the path yesterday, and the path was completed TODAY.

Shelby Farms path

The path leading to the left was the old one (fenced in). The one to the right is the new path, closer to the lake. Very doubtful TDOT, Shelby County or the City of Memphis could have done a better or faster job. Shelby Farms, you are doing outstanding work.

The Broad Avenue Art Walk is tomorrow from 5-10. Event information:

“The Broad Avenue Spring Art Walk is going to be the biggest yet! 

All the studios, galleries, and businesses will be open, and there will be plenty of art, music and dance performances.
