The heart makes our bodies run.

The heart of a city is downtown.

Without that strong pulse, a city won't reach full potential.

Montgomery's downtown receives added adrenaline this week with the opening of Fountain Square, and an earlier than normal Jubilee CityFest.

The new "Thank Goodness It's Thursday" promotion features free concerts and movies throughout the spring and summer at the Riverwalk Amphitheatre.

The new river walk itself will provide a more enjoyable venue for the many national acts booked for the Riverwalk Amphitheater following City Fest.

And for great entertainment, the Montgomery Biscuits always leave you smiling.

In February, the United Negro College Fund will be the first convention participant in the new Renaissance Montgomery Convention Center Hotel and Spa.

Montgomery could become the convention destination in the South.

Downtown will be transformed with an upscale restaurant and spa, a performing arts center, and more than 300 new employees and hotel rooms.

A vibrant downtown will make Montgomery a destination - not just for tourists, but natives!

That's when we'll realize our true potential as a city!
