FestivALL events Thursday will attract a sea of art, music and dance enthusiasts.

The streets of Charleston will turn into a work of art as people stroll along Capitol Street for the Downtown ArtWalk which starts at 5 p.m. On-lookers will also be entertained with street performers as they stroll between venues. There will be multiple venues displaying art, including Art Emporium, Charleston Ballet, Delfine’s Jewelry, Ivor’s Trunk, Taylor Books Annex Gallery, The Purple Moon/Modern by Design, Uncork & Create, Visions Day Spa and several others.

Local artists will paint or draw the scenery on rotating easels that are in sync with music from street musicians at 6:30 p.m. at the Lee Street Triangle.

BB Riverboat Cruises begins with the majestic River Queen boat that will be hosting hour and a half long sightseeing cruises along the Kanawha River. The cruises will continue to float on until Sunday afternoon.
