BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) – Happy Fourth of July weekend! For many it will be a long weekend, and there is plenty to do around the area to occupy your three days off! Antwon Ervin from Discover Birmingham is here to share some events you can find around town.

Thursday July 3rd:

Birmingham Art Crawl | 5 – 9pm

On the first Thursday of every month, downtown Birmingham transforms into a walking gallery full of artists, musicians, performers, food & fun!

This 5:00 – 9:00 pm, rain or shine, happening is a great way to meet local artists and performers, buy and appreciate their work, and be part of the rapidly growing art scene in Birmingham. An estimated 2,500+ art enthusiasts attend each month to support more than 30 local artists.
