MARQUETTE — An eclectic mix of local musicians will play along the sidewalks of Third Street in downtown Marquette from 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday for the first episode of Music on Third this summer.

The full lineup will be available the week of each event on the Marquette Downtown Development Authority website at

Taking place on the third Thursday of the summer months, the other Music on Third events will take place from 6-8 p.m. on July 21, August 18 and September 15.

The DDA said in a press release that Music on Third brings the community to the summer sidewalks of downtown Marquette to listen to local music and visit the more than 100 unique shops and restaurants that line Third Street.

DDA reminds the public that it is against Michigan state law to openly consume alcohol in the public right-of-way, which includes the sidewalks of North Third Street.

The DDA suggests that visitors consume alcoholic beverages responsibly at home or in a downtown establishment, as permitted by law.
