“The inaugural Third Thursday in April was so much fun—we can’t wait for May’s event!” says Carrie Schulstad, Executive Director of the Downtown Camas Association (DCA). “The live music added to the cool evening vibe and people were just soaking it in. The unique offerings in the shops and restaurants make this event truly worth coming for because you’ll find things you won’t find at any other time. Grab your friends and support our local businesses while having a great time together in Downtown Camas!”
Third Thursdays are being held each month of the year, each with a different theme. June’s Third Thursday will be on June 17 with the theme “Explore More!”
