For the third consecutive year, the “Party on the Purple” series is returning to the Purple People Bridge this spring and summer with the first bridge party scheduled for Wednesday, May 1, at 6 p.m.
The free weekly summer party series — which includes live music, food trucks, beer, wine, and spirits— will run every Wednesday until August, 7.
New this year are themed parties, such as Kentucky Derby Night, 80’s Night, Dog Night, and much more. As in past years, the Party on the Purple will run from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m. on Wednesday nights.
A portion of funds generated from food and drink sales during the weekly events go toward painting and maintaining the historic pedestrian-only bridge. The nonprofit organization is trying to raise $1 million to repaint the bridge and make other capital improvements to it.
