“Third Thursdays are a very fun way to come together with your friends or your sweetheart and spend a lively evening together—there is so much to do!” says Carrie Schulstad, Executive Director of the Downtown Camas Association (DCA). “This month we’re adding in a passport activity since the weather will be nice and walking through our beautiful downtown will be an extra enjoyable experience. Come support local, see what’s new and explore more in the heart of our city.”
