Shoppers gathered along Main Street in Evansville today for the 2nd Annual Spring Small Business Saturday.

The event was created last year to support small businesses who might have been suffering during the height of the pandemic.

Not only were downtown shops and restaurants open today, but select vendors and food trucks came out to take part in the sidewalk sale.

Downtown Evansville even partnered with Deaconess Hospital to offer first dose Pfizer vaccines.

For additional entertainment, four different local artists performed live music as shoppers browsed and Downtown Evansville handed out free “Shop Downtown” tote bags.

The next Small Business Saturday will take place in the fall.

Today's high of 93° not only marks our hottest recorded temperature of the year, but our highest since the afternoon of August 10th of 2020! Despite the oppressive heat, the day itself wasn't necessarily unpleasant; while peak temperatures climbed abnormally high for this time of the year, a weak cold front passing to our south ushered in a breezy northerly wind flow that helped take the edge off that summer-like heat across the Tri-State earlier this afternoon. The evening ahead will remain quite pleasant, albeit mild - expect the mercury to dip from 87° to 75° between dinnertime and 10PM. Between the northerly winds and clear conditions overnight, morning low temperatures will trend toward the upper 50s and low 60s early Tuesday; we'll fall to 60° even in Evansville.
