Merchants group hosts  5 Points cleanup

Linda and Paul Bremer lend a hand

Members of the 5 Points Merchants Association and friends got their hands dirty last month during a neighborhood cleanup event.
The group began the first phase of the re-landscaping of 5 Points between Post Street and the 5 Points intersection. Volunteers removed weeds and old mulch from the various beds along the street, trimmed Crepe Myrtles, replaced the mulch, planted and cleaned the sidewalks and parking areas.
The group’s hard work creates a freshened look for the upcoming 10th Annual Riverside WineFest, slated for Nov. 17. The event showcases more than 300 wines, food vendors and live entertainment. Held from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., the festival is sponsored by Riverside Liquors, Royal Palm Village Wine & Tapas, Riverside Avondale Preservation, the 5 Points Merchants Association and Regions Bank. Tickets can be purchased with a $30 donation online at or beginning Nov. 1 at Riverside Liquors at 1035 Park Street. Online sales close at 3 p.m. on Nov. 17 but tickets are available at the festival. Free one-way transportation will be provided from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m.
Proceeds from the event benefit RAP and Big Brothers & Big Sisters of North Florida.
