Celebrate Green in downtown Pleasanton on September 3 during the 1st Wednesday Street Party, the last one of the summer.  The Pleasanton Downtown Association (PDA) in collaboration with the City of Pleasanton and Hacienda Business Park announce the second annual “Green Scene.”  Downtown Pleasanton will welcome vendors specifically involved in energy efficient technology, waste reduction, water conservation, and recycling.  Organizations will be on Division Street between Main Street and Railroad Avenue to describe some of the money-saving rebates available to local residents who choose energy efficient upgrades to their homes.   Creatures of Impulse, a teen improvisational group, will also be performing.
Put on your dancing shoes!  Live music will fill downtown Pleasanton during the entire event.  At the Entertainment Garden at 530 Main Street, Public Eye will play high energy rock and roll.  Garage Band Academy will play popular hits of yesterday and today in the 300 block of Main Street.  The GroWiser Band will be rocking St. Mary Street where Arlen Ness will display more than 10 motorcycles from their Dublin showroom.
Main Street will be shut down from 6-9 p.m. for this monthly summer event.  Pedestrians are invited to visit our unique shops and restaurants and walk the middle of Main Street where nearly 200 businesses and community organizations will have booths set up to market their products and services. Then turn onto W. Angela Street for ArtBlock where local artists, sculptors and jewelry crafters, all who specialize in exquisite, hand-made arts and crafts, will be there in person to showcase, discuss and sell their works. 
1st Wednesdays are where we can all gather, celebrate and enjoy the heart of our community! We invite you to come downtown and rediscover 1st Wednesdays!  Be sure to follow the PDA on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest to be the first to know about downtown events & activities!  A special thanks to Pleasanton Mayor Jerry Thorne and Councilwoman Kathy Narum for sponsoring September’s Entertainment Garden.
