Unable to predict the unusually summer-like temperatures of this past winter, the Downtown Huntington Beach ArtWalk held off its monthly event until today—but no matter! It's here now. Happening the third Thursday of each month (from here on out), Huntington Beach's Main Street turns into an open-air art gallery, free and open to the public to peruse the creative talents of local artists. Retail shops and restaurants become cultural outposts for the evening, displaying paintings in their windows, with many works are available for purchase. There are unique installations, surprise performances, music, and plenty of food—it might feel like summer all year long, but this event marks the official start of beach season.
