Over the past couple months, the city of Stuart has been working on upgrading its historic downtown district. The project is now complete, and Stuart is ready to celebrate with a bash happening 3 weeks from today.
The "Historic Downtown Stuart Street Party" will kick-off at 5 p.m. on Thursday, October 11th with a ribbon cutting by the Chamber of Commerce. At 5:30 there will be a reception, followed by two popular bands: the Bryce Allyn band perfroming at 7 followed by Passafire at 8:30. Meanwhile, guests can stroll through the streets of downtown and check out some cool new features.
Downtown Stuart has more than 50 unique locally-owned shops, restaurants and art galleries in a charming old Florida atmosphere on the waterfront. The city installed more parking, a large pedestrian area with ample seating, updated landscaping, improved general functionality of the streets and also repainted roads including creating colorful crosswalks.
The area is located on the Intracoastal Waterway, and includes a long Riverwalk that stretches over the water and offers a beautiful view of the massive Roosevelt Bridge. It's a great place to unwind and its mix of old and new is something special.
