Friends of Downtown ending summer with a bang

Friends of Downtown interview with News 18 This Morning

LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) – Summer may be winding down, and Friends of Downtown are going out of the season with a bang. The organization has not one, but two events planned — Beers Across the Wabash and the last Mosey Down Main Street.

Friends of Downtown treasurer Steve Bultinck appeared on News 18 This Morning to talk about Beers Across the Wabash. “We have 33 microbrewers that are owned and operated in Indiana, so there will be approximately 100 and some craft beers.”

Bultinck continued, “The money that we raise is used to fund the Christmas lighting project that the Friends embarked on last year when we changed the lights on the courthouse to make it look more like a tree.”

There will also be some great grub to go along with all of that beer including pretzel necklaces and catering from D&R Market and the Outpost.

General admission is $35. VIP tickets are $60. You can purchase them here. Beers Across the Wabash is from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. at Riehle Plaza in downtown Lafayette.

Friends of Downtown will also be hosting the last Mosey Down Main Street on Saturday, Aug. 30.

“We have one more Mosey. The last Mosey is always Labor Day weekend,” Bultinck said. “We’re working very closely with Food Finders for this Mosey, so we’re asking everyone who’s going to attend to bring a non-perishable food item so we can help feed the hungry.”

Mosey Down Main Street is from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m along Main Street in downtown Lafayette. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
