MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - The Pinch District will play host to Memphis' fifth MEMFix event on Saturday with pop-up shops, vendors, streetscape improvements, live entertainment, and children's activities.
 
In recent years, several businesses shut down in Pinch District, as the area has infrequent foot and vehicle traffic.
 
Over the past three years, MEMFix pop-up events have reinvigorated several Memphis neighborhoods in transition, including Overton Square and Crosstown.
 
The event comes a few weeks before Bass Pro Shops opens its doors nearby on April 29.
 
Bass Pro Shops is expected to bring more movement to the area and Pinch District businesses are looking forward to both MEMFix and the impact of Bass Pro Shops.
 
Saturday's event will stretch from North Main Street, between Jackson Avenue and Overton Avenue from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
 
The event is free to enter and families and pets are welcome.
