Manhattan’s popular Third Thursday has some improvements this year. Downtown Manhattan Executive Director Gina Snyder says the first change is the event’s start date. The event series will begin in June instead of May but will still run for five months. Snyder says the normally outdoor-only party is also changing for the better.

Artists will now be located inside vendor’s establishments; but music, dancing and other entertainment will remain on the sidewalks. Snyder says the changes are a result of the unpredictable Kansas weather, but says there’s more good news.
