Rochester Main Street to celebrate completion of new deck in Wyandotte Walkway

Rochester Main Street, an all-volunteer nonprofit, is pleased to announce the completion of a new deck stage in Wyandotte Walkway, next to Fallen Leaf Bistro.

According to organizers, the walkway leading pedestrians from North Main Street to the Wyandotte Mill had been underutilized for years. The deck was constructed above a garden that has not been well maintained.

“We’re excited to show off the new deck stage in the Wyandotte Walkway,” said Jeff Bisson, Main Street president. “The area has been an eyesore for many years, so we added Edison string lighting and a deck to activate the space. It’s our hope that the walkway will be used for community activities in the future.”

Bisson says the deck can be used for takeout dining, live music, and other outdoor activities.

To celebrate the opening of the deck, Rochester Main Street will be hosting a party on Wednesday, August 23rd, starting at 6:00 pm. The event also serves as the kickoff to Moonlight Madness, an event that encourages shoppers and diners to descend on downtown Rochester for a variety of specials and discounts offered by participating businesses.

“It’s a good night for people to walk around and check out all the unique products, services, and specials,” said Bisson. “We’re thrilled to see all the progress made over the past several years. We hope events like Moonlight Madness will attract new businesses to downtown. Activities like this could be the reason an entrepreneur moves to downtown as opposed to a shopping center or mall setting.”
