The City of Oakland Park recently held an Oakland Park Art Walk (OPAW) from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. on a Saturday. The City partnered with an art gallery to host the event on Main Street downtown.

Main Street and NE 12th Avenue were transformed into a canvas of creativity. Spanning two blocks, the OPAW invited residents and visitors to wander and savor the diverse talents of vendors and 21 local artists. Three artists did live painting. Six restaurants and three businesses participated.

About 500 people attended. The next OPAWs will take place on August 17 and November 16, 2024.
