JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

Springtime means Downtown Jonesboro becomes Alive After Five.

The first Alive After Five of the season kicks off Thursday.

From 5 p.m. to 8 p.m., Huntington Avenue will close from Church to Main Street and be lined with vendors.

Autumn Wilder, Downtown Jonesboro Association, said there is something for everyone.

“Amazing local talent, anywhere from artists to handcrafted jewelry, homemade soap, kettle corn, there's a petting zoo,” Wilder said. “We are going to have live music.”

Thursday’s event will also feature a special opportunity for kids ages 2 to 10.

“The Superhero Sprint starts at 6 p.m. and it's kind of a kickoff event for their March for Babies downtown on April 29,” Wilder said.

You can register your child for the Superhero Sprint at Alive After Five.

Wilder said this is a great opportunity to bring the community together while also supporting local vendors and their products.

If you have a product you’d like to feature at Alive After Five email Wilder at autumn@downtownjonesboroassociation.com for a vendor application.
