Parks and Arts coming to Williamson Road in Roanoke

Posted: Updated:
The Williamson Road Area Business Association will soon play host to a traveling community event in the Star City.
Parks and Arts will be coming to Preston Park in June.

The event will feature a performance by the Southwest Virginia Ballet and work on display from the Taubman Museum of Art.

There will also be food vendors and activities for kids.

While it's not a typical event for a business association to host, organizers hope it will pay dividends.

"The goal here is to bring people to Williamson Road," said Wendy Jones, the Executive Director of the Williamson Road Area Business Association. (We want) them see the wonderful opportunities available to them here, whether it be shopping, playing in the park or going to the library or whatever. It opens those doors."

The event is Saturday, June 21 in Preston Park.
