First Friday at the Purple Porch

Friday, May 1, 5-8pm

Hey all you guys and gals! Come on down to Lowell, the area of South Bend now known as the East Bank Village, and join Purple Porch Co-op for a throwback to groceries and grocers of yesteryear. All the cool cats holding down the fort will be decked out and dressed to the 9s in vintage attire (40s, 50s, and 60s). 

We want all of you to join us in your best vintage outfits, too. For some vintage means the 20s, for other the 80s so join us in whatever attire makes you feel nostalgic.

We'd also like to see our parking lot and Hill Street filled with forms of vintage transportation. Scoot on down in your hotrod, bicycle, or motorbike and join for some good ol'-fashioned fun.
