Alton Main Street offers the public a chance to catch up with what’s going on in the downtown area with its quarterly series called “What’s Up Downtown.”  It runs from 5:30-7pm tonight (Tues) at Jacoby Arts Center on Broadway and is free to attend.  The event is an open forum where local business owners, and others with interests in the downtown area, provide their latest news or updates on special events. 

Alton Main Street Executive Director Sara McGibany tells the Big Z they have a few speakers lined up including Jeff Ledford, Food & Beverage Manager at Argosy Casino Alton; and Mike Kelly, owner of the Cracker Factory Building on Broadway.
