A special event is planned on Labor Day weekend to give Springfieldians an up-close look at some of the city's finest Commercial properties.
The Afternoon Loft Walk and Bohemian Ball, sponsored by The Commercial Club of Springfield, takes place Sept. 6 on historic Commercial Street.
The loft walk will be held 1-5 p.m. and "offers a peek at Commercial Street's newest loft apartments," as well as a look at the Open Air Sculpture Gallery, new landscaping and facade restorations, according to a release from The Commercial Club.
Tickets for the event are $4 in advance or $5 at the door. Proceeds will go to finance the street's Open Air Sculpture Gallery and other beautification efforts.
Highlights of the loft walk will include a tour of one of The Kitchen Inc.'s transitional housing apartments in the historic Ollis Building, and a visit to Commercial Street's first rooftop deck and sunroom.
"Commercial Street is bustling with renovation activity, and these apartments are chock full of innovative design ideas," the release stated.
At sunset, participants will Toast the Sunset from the Jefferson Avenue Footbridge. The Bohemian Ball begins at 7 p.m., continuing until 11 with dancing under the stars, live music and awards for the Jazzy Threads Costume Contest.
Advance tickets to the event are available at Moon City Cafe, Harlow's, Kaleidoscope and Gordita's International Cafe.
