GREENSBORO, N.C.-- This is the last weekend for downtown Greensboro's Pop-Up Promenade at February One Place.

Every Friday and Saturday night since the beginning of May, February One Place shut down for live music, activities and food trucks.

"There's been so many people that will walk down on a business day and say 'What are all these hexagons on the street in coral and aqua?'" said Cecelia Thompson, with Action Greensboro, who organizes the event.

Nick Benshoff's food truck, Bandito Burrito has parked at the Pop-Up Promenade a few times. Benshoff says he is hungry for more.

"I think it's great to have the opportunity. I wish it was something that opened up more frequently. I think it's limited by the number of times, just on Fridays and Saturdays," Benshoff said.

Thompson is pleased with the 15 Pop-Up Promenades they've hosted so far this summer.

"It's something we think is a low investment really but a high return in terms of how do we engage young professionals in the process and really get people to think differently on how they see downtown," Thompson said.

The summer schedule may be coming to end, but the public may not have to wait until next summer for the promenade to pop-up again.

"Maybe a pop up dinner in the fall where we will bring a big long table on February One Place and have a dinner with local chefs? There's a lot of different ideas. It might just pop-up one day and go away the next.  We'll see," Thompson said.

Friday and Saturday's activities start at 6 p.m.
