APPLETON (WLUK) -- A new event took place Wednesday night on Appleton's Wisconsin Avenue.

The Fox Cities first-night market, Bazaar After Dark, will run until 10:00 p.m.

It included live music, art vendors, food trucks, flame throwers, jugglers and family activities.

The aim is to bring attention to small businesses and pop-up vendors located on Wisconsin Avenue as opposed to the bigger events that usually take place on College Avenue.

"I think it's really important to have a thriving downtown and in fact I'm a big advocate for downtown Appleton but I also think that it's important that we draw attention to other business districts or other areas that are struggling a little bit," said Adrienne Palm, director of Pulse Young Professionals Network.

Tundraland, and Pulse Young Professionals Network, a program with the Fox Cities Chamber, hosted the event.
