Last Wednesday hundreds of people flocked to downtown Baldwin City for a celebration of the completion of the $1.8 million Downtown Streetscape Project.

The project was designed, in part, to aid handicap accessibility. There was also free food at Wheat State Pizza, live music, a clown making balloon animals and the inaugural Art Walk of the season.

The project was started last June and the finishing touches were done about a week ago. It includes a fountain at the corner of Eighth and High streets given by the community to Baker University to celebrate its 150th year.
