What is Third Thursday?
The first Third Thursday in Hahira was held in August of 2007. There was a group of business owners who wanted to put together an ice cream social and invite people to Downtown Hahira who had perhaps not been before. After that, they organized two other Third Thursdays, each with different themes. Those same business owners are still active in the planning of events today, and now they meet regularly with any Hahira business owners who can come to the meetings or want to participate. In April of 2008, Third Thursday was established more regularly and now takes place every other month in Downtown Hahira.
