In April, I posted photos from the Art Rise’s inaugural Art March Parade in Thomas Square, so I decided to check out the fun last weekend at the Waters Avenue Art March Parade.

Waters Avenue has some wonderful potential, but some of the vacant commercial properties are unlikely to attract investors until the city’s long-delayed zoning overhaul is in place.
Anyway, the evening was great fun, and I took a bunch of photos:
