In order to celebrate the finished project the city will hold a grand opening with a block party on Chaparral Street in conjunction with the First Friday ArtWalk at 5 p.m. Friday.

Vendors, musicians, live artists and other entertainment will all be part of the block party and ArtWalk which will also take place on La Retama Park from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.

Business owners on Chaparral Street are also pleased with the completion of the construction. Richard Lomax with Water Street says it was a difficult 17 months, but says they look forward to the benefits of the project in the long run.
