No Thursdays on First & 3rd Thursday, June 25, 2015

ROCHESTER, Minn.---June 22, 2015--- In support of Rochesterfest 2015, there will be no Thursdays on First & 3rd (TOF) Thursday, June 25, 2015.

“The Rochester Downtown Alliance is supportive of Rochesterfest’s relocation and wishes the organization the greatest success this year,” said Jenna Bowman, Rochester Downtown Alliance (RDA) Executive Director.

Conversations regarding this support came up in 2014 when Rochesterfest was seeking a new location.

“As an organization that has started and maintained successful events, we know the importance of having the community’s support,” She said.

TOF will return to its normal schedule of every Thursday in June, July, and August next year.

While there will be no TOF June 25, the RDA will be hosting Movies on the Plaza, downtown Rochester’s movie night, Saturday, June 27 with a screening of “Muppets Most Wanted.” Attendance is free and patrons are encouraged to bring a lawn chair or blanket.

TOF will resume on Thursday, July 2 with the first ever Themed Thursdays. The July 2 theme is Red, White, & Blue in honor of the Fourth of July holiday. Themed Thursdays feature a variety of fun and engaging activities for the whole family. Visit for more information about specific activities.
