On the first Wednesday of every month in Pleasanton, Main Street is closed off to traffic and the street party begins. From 4:30 to 10 p.m., downtown shops bring their goods outdoors to their market booths for a sea of shoppers, diners, and strollers enjoying the fresh air, live music, and friendly atmosphere.
If this sounds like a fun time and you’re out and about on September 5 at Pleasanton’s 1st Wednesday Street Party, be sure to visit the Pleasanton Pediatric Dentistry booth. We’ll set up shop with a sugar game for the kids, free toothbrushes, educational info, and a raffle basket filled with goodies for a healthy smile.
“We love volunteering our time to enjoy Pleasanton’s downtown area and connect with our neighbors,” Pleasanton Pediatric Dentistry office’s Nancy Wilbur says. “It’s always a treat when one of our young patients comes running to the booth.”
Here are some of our favorite highlights of First Wednesday:
Market on Main. The Pacific Coast Farmers’ Market growers bring their veggies, fruits, and flowers to the late afternoon and evening scene. Market on Main brings the 800 block of Main Street to life with the vibrant colors and smells of healthy eating – and we’re all for that!
ArtBlock. Also on the 800 block, there’s ArtBlock, which give talented local artists, sculptors, and crafters the chance to showcase their handiwork. Live artist demonstrations and discussions enhance the interactive component of First Wednesday.
Getting to know the local businesses. Now’s the time when area residents may get to know the services available to them. Meet the nearby martial arts instructor firsthand, test out that inviting spa’s skincare products, sample some local wine, or find yourself an expert chiropractor. Alameda and Pleasanton Pediatric Dentistry is sure to be in good company!
