First Fridays on the Vine continued Oct. 1 with vendors, food and music in the heart of the Jazz District.

Members of the Corvette Connected Club, which puts on car shows in the community, lined their Corvettes along 18th Street and Gerald McClendon with the Show Me Riders Horse Club hosted horse and pony rides.

McClendon said it’s important to engage youth and make horses visible and accessible because of the great benefits of horse riding.

First Fridays on the Vine will continue Nov. 5 from 4 to 9 p.m.
