EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WFIE) - A new event was held in downtown Evansville on Friday night that promoted small businesses, as well as a good time.

Moonlite Madness was hosted by the Downtown Evansville Economic Improvement District. Downtown stores and restaurants stayed open during late hours and offered specials. The Meridian Plaza and the Renaissance on Main Buildings also gave tours of condominiums for sale.

Six local musicians performed live music along Main Street as guests strolled from shop to shop.

“I think it’s a great thing, especially because of the times that we are in right now, and it really shows that people haven’t lost their civilization part of them, and that people can still come together and have a great time,” performer Dylan Coston said.

A second Moonlite Madness event is currently scheduled for September 11.
