Lunch on the Square returned last week to downtown Fort Wayne with great success. Over 175 people came out during the lunch hour to enjoy food, friends, and live music. The weather was beautiful and there were plenty of options to choose from no matter what you were hungry for. People took advantage of specials going on at local restaurants as well as the food trucks that showed up for the special occasion.
After a long winter, it was beautiful to see people catching up under the warm sun. One Summit Square provided shade for the patrons. It also provided a stage for local favorite, Solar Buskers, as they played a variety of enjoyable music that was just loud enough to embrace but not so loud that you couldn’t hear your own conversation.
Running into more friends than you can count, having homemade, original food in your stomach, and a light breeze in the air made this one of the best Lunch on the Squares of the last few years. Even though LOTS competed with the return of Germanfest last week, it proved that downtown Fort Wayne was more than able to handle a variety of attractions for locals.
If you haven’t had the opportunity to enjoy LOTS in the past, this summer is the perfect time to embrace this downtown tradition every Thursday from 11:30 a.m. until 1 p.m. Grab some food, lay out in the grass or sit at one of our tables, and come enjoy all that downtown Fort Wayne has to offer in the heart of the city. You won’t be disappointed and we’re sure it will only make you come back for more!
