Automobile Alley is joining the list of downtown districts hosting monthly festivities, starting with the inaugural run of “Shop Hop,” a monthly block party that will feature area restaurants and retailers.

Every third Thursday of the month, Shop Hop will feature open house events at local businesses, extended shopping hours at retailers, live music, street artists and performers, kids' activities, food from Automobile Alley restaurants, discounts, freebies and giveaways. Participating business also will host a variety of in-store activities and promotions.

Automobile Alley encompasses Broadway between NW 4 and NW 10 — a stretch that served as the city's original auto dealer row.

“As a business owner on Automobile Alley, I couldn't be more proud of how far our district has come,” said Lyndsay Davis, owner of Raylyn Taylor Salon on 8th Street. “The neighborhood is brimming with locally owned shops and businesses around every corner. Shop Hop is the perfect way to attract new guests and patrons to the area to showcase our thriving community.”
