first thursdays art walk lagunaYou can’t ask for much better than Laguna Beach as a setting for Art Walk. Let’s be honest, I’ll walk around Laguna at any time, art or no – extra things to capture my attention is just frosting on the cake!

On the First Thursday of every month, local artisans, vendors, craftsmen and creative types come out in droves for the First Thursdays Art Walk from 6-9 p.m. There are enough art galleries alone to make the night enjoyable, but all the extra things to see and do (not to mention the great restaurant deals) make this a great night for a date or just a fun activity with friends.

Many of the local shops also give some floor space to unique artists or vendors, such as TagBag, a company which uses South African license plates to make quirky, cute purses and gives jobs to people the Kayamandi area of South Africa, many of whom are impacted by the AIDS epidemic.

So bundle up the kids, call your honey and come on down for a night of strolling, shopping and getting more artsy by the minute. See you on the First Thursday!
