Arts Night Out goes on the road this week, bringing the pop-up art event to downtown St. Johns. The event, which turns local storefronts and businesses into temporary art galleries and performance spaces, includes St. Johns locations like Bruno’s Wonder Bar, Oh Mi Organics and Unique Reflections. The event is pet friendly, too, so you and your four-legged friend can meander through the mix of creative people and urban spaces. To top it off, there will be raffle drawings for kids and adults and live music starting at 8 p.m. 5 p.m. FREE. Downtown St. Johns. (517) 372-4636, myartsnightout.com.
