A few tips for getting the most out of Art Walk:
• Make a special effort to visit those businesses on the side streets, around the corners, and maybe a few extra steps up the road.
• Follow the recommended route. We changed the route up a little this month to show some love to the small businesses and artists who aren’t located on the “Main” drag. They often have unique items, experiences and artists that you don’t want to miss. Please take a moment to visit them and show some love. If you follow the recommended route, you should have plenty of time to visit all the locations.
• Save the stops where you know you’ll spend more time for last (so you don’t run out of time to visit the others).
• Stay after Art Walk for dinner, drinks, and music at one of our amazing downtown restaurants/pubs.
