If you plan on attending Art Walk this Thursday, take my advise and wear some comfortable walking shoes. A lot of the downtown Abilene business' will be open and participating in this Alzheimer's Art Walk fundraiser.

I attend to Art Walk every month and I usually never see this many business' open or this much activity downtown during the Center for Contemporary Arts monthly Art Walk. So my advice is wear comfy clothing and shoes and come hungry because almost everything will be open. Now here's a list of who will be open Thursday evening.
