For this year, the first Fondren After 5 has been pushed back to April 5.
In a statement to area businesses and restaurants, Fondren Renaissance Foundation Executive Director Jim Wilkirson said that due to unseasonably cold weather and ongoing construction to sidewalks in the neighborhood, the event will begin later than usual this year.
“Some area businesses may elect to start earlier than this date, and some may be open this month, but we will not officially publicize the event as a neighborhood until our kickoff on April 5.”
Events for FA5 will center around three areas: Duling Avenue, State Street and Rainbow Plaza. The plan is to have Duling Avenue blocked off each month, activities in Rainbow Plaza from Hops & Habanas to Cups, and Sneaky Beans serving as the anchor for the State Street area, though these plans may change due to construction.
