Downtown Conway comes alive after dark again starting April 7th.

Update 2/20/2012: Wanting to put more emphasis on the shopping and entertainment aspect, Conway officials and event organizers have re-branded to Alive after Five. 

Rather than a weekly event from April until June, it will become a monthly event that starts in June. Obviously, the new name is inspired by the events' organizing group, Conway Downtown Alive. They just weren't entirely comfortable with the pub crawl image. The Sun News has more details. 

Update 4/11/2011: According to the "game nights" include several activities including sidewalk favorites cornhole and laddergolf.

Curious what the highlights will be through June? Here's a list:

  • April 14 - Game Night
  • April 21 - Grown Folks Egg Hunt
  • April 28 - Street Corner Musician Shop & Stroll
  • May 5 - First Thursday Concert
  • May 12 - Game Night
  • May 19 - Sock Hop
  • May 26 - Street Corner Musician Shop & Stroll
  • June 2 - First Thursday Concert
  • June 9 - Game Night

First Report: Every Thursday evening from now until June, locals and tourists alike can enjoy live music, dining, and shopping in historic downtown Conway. has the skinny on who will be performing this week as a part of the kick off night.

During the Thursday evenings, Conway merchants offer in-store promotions, such as tastings, demonstrations, and night-owl sales, all providing evening shoppers with unique reasons to visit Conway and join the fun. Additionally, River Memories Boat Tours offers special evening tours.

We're hoping they resuscitate their Facebook page this year as well.
