A party featuring a 20-booth artists market, live music and more will hit the streets this weekend.

Creston. After Dark, a free event hosted by the art gallery Lions & Rabbits and the nonprofit Experience Live Art, will shut down Plainfield Avenue NE between Leonard and Grove streets from 4-10 p.m. this Saturday.

Creston. After Dark will showcase the progress on a beautification initiative designed to activate the Creston neighborhood business district by creating green space and murals.

“It’s going to be funky,” organizers say on event’s Facebook page.

They expect 600 to 1,000 attendees.
