There are a lot of reasons to look forward to Summer 2018 in Douglas. Beyond our area's natural summertime beauty, numerous plans are developing to bring summer fun to the community.
First Thursdays, a downtown festival that happens on the first evening of the month along 2nd Street in downtown Douglas, begins on May 3. Whether you're an enterprising youngster with a lemonade stand (see photo at right), a business owner, or a local resident looking to gather with your community, these events have been very popular. Those looking to participate Summer 2018 are encouraged to contact Megan Tillard at Allure Boutique in downtown Douglas, 358-8075.
June's First Thursday event, along with Railroad Day at the Converse County Tourism and Visitor Center, will kick off what's to be a four-day Jackalope Days celebration. The event will also include the downtown car show, the annual rainbow run, a street dance and more. Citizens and groups from across the community have been stepping forward to participate in the growing event.
