Just in case the mid-week holiday has you a little confused, today is Thursday and if you’re not at work right now, you might be in trouble.

Also, it’s the first Thursday of the month which means there’s a big party in downtown Fayetteville this evening.

This month’s First Thursday art walk on the square kicks off at 5 p.m.

At least 35 artists and craftspeople will have their work for sale, including drawings, mixed media, digital art from Cory David Perry; handmade longboards from F-Town Longboards; and jewelry from Danielle Ross and Connie O’Mara.

Fayetteville’s 3 Penny Acre will supply tonight’s live music at 6 p.m., and The Goonies movie will be shown at around 9 p.m. on the Old Post Office building’s loading dock.

As always, expect a charity beer garden and a kids zone for the kiddos.

Don’t forget that parking on all the streets and public lots around the square is free after 5 p.m.
