The First ArtWalk of the new year took place on Friday January 6th and, once again, drew an estimated 5,000+ people to the Downtown area to enjoy an evening of free, fun, family entertainment. There have been reports of folks having to park on Shoreline and walk down to the ArtWalk venues; far from being a negative comment I see that as really, really positive as it indicates that lots of folks are turning out to appreciate the efforts of local artists, businesses, musicians, and visiting vendors.
Please note that LAZ Parking offers a special “Corpus Christi First” rate of $2 on ArtWalk night (after 5:30pm) and $2 all day Saturday on the first weekend (Corpus Christi First / Marina Market Days) at their Water Street / Schatzell Street lot. There is also ample on street parking on Water Street, Mesquite Street, Lower Broadway, and Shoreline. If you can’t park close to the Central Downtown area consider parking to the North at the Art Museum of South Texas, The Science and History Museum, The Texas State Museum of Asian Cultures or to the South along Water Street at the old Coliseum parking lot or on the Peoples Street T-Head and catching the free RTA #79 ArtWalk Express which will drop you at various ArtWalk locations.
