The first-ever Wine, Chocolate, and Art Walk hit downtown Lima Thursday evening (9/13/18). Around 20 stores including Perennial Glow Spa, Alter Ego Comics, and Nitza's offered wine or chocolate goodies to event goers and dozens of artists lined the sidewalks to show 350 citizens what their downtown has to offer. Organizer Jodie Robinson of PR Queen says that she wanted to draw the community's attention to what they're missing in their town.

"I just love to promote businesses and I think downtown is doing so much to have a lot of progress and I thought, what a great opportunity, let's do something downtown to kind of really stir up some interest, get people excited, and see that we have a lot of hidden treasures that maybe they're just not getting out and checking out," says Robinson.

Robinson says she plans on putting on the event again next year. You can keep a look out for information on that on Facebook @thePRqueen.
