Final Summer Bash This Week at Third Thursday

(Joplin, MO)Downtown Joplin Alliance (DJA) and Ajinomoto Foods welcomes the community to Main Street for August’s Third Thursday!

As summer draws to a close, Ajinomoto Foods is sponsoring this month’s event and giving away free shaved ice from Kona Ice. Find them at the corner of 4th and Main Street and enjoy a refreshing treat while playing some games and winning prizes!
