Niles Third Thursday returns with pet ‘paw-ty’
NILES – The second Niles Third Thursday event of 2021 will spotlight pets and 18 local businesses coming together to benefit the Humane Society of Southwest Michigan.
Organizer Laura Tuthill, co-owner of Iron Shoe Distillery at 3 N. Third St., said she hoped visitors to downtown would bring their pets outside to enjoy the nice weather and offerings with them.
“It’s a great time to come downtown. There will be something for everyone,” Tuthill said.
