So much to do, so much to see!

Last week we got a little sappy about the pleasure of serving Downtown Eatonton and its5th friday final copy patrons.  Bryan Adams’ lyrical melodies have been playing in the Main Street office ever since.  (Someone stop the madness!) If you missed it, all that was due to reminding everyone about the upcoming 5th Friday in the Briar Patch next week, July 31!  Be there!  Bring your peeps!

Maddison Stahle enjoyed spending her cash prize from the last 5th Friday in two of Downtown Eatonton’s shopping locations!

 

Do not forget to participate in the scavenger hunt for a chance to win money and other prizes!  There will be THREE winners.  First place – then two random other places that are a surprise!  Winners will be announced at 8:00 PM at Smith’s Coastal Grill.  (Must be present to win).  In addition to the opportunity to be a big winner, anyone who completes the hunt will receive 10% Off purchases in participating stores!  HUNT BEGINS AT MAIN STREET INFORMATIONAL TENT ON COURTHOUSE LAWN (Sponsored by The People’s Bank).

This will be an excellent way to spend one of our last lazy days of summer in the Briar Patch before the hustle and bustle of the school season begins!  Come out and spend some time with us!

Speaking of the lazy days of Summer…. did y’all hear that the county pool has opened!?!  There’s no need to sweat away the heat any longer!  We are so thankful to the County for repairing that concrete pond for our pleasure!  What’s a community without a pool!?  You can read about it in the Eatonton Messenger. — Just think, now, of the perfect summer day you can spend right here in the Briar Patch:  Stroll downtown for an iced coffee and chicken biscuit at Smith’s Sweets.  Spend the morning browsing and buying in ALL of our shops.  Stop for a margarita and some Tex-Mex delight at Cuco’s.  Enjoy a relaxing pedicure at Nails By Aaron.  Visit the Georgia Writers Museum and the Veterans Wall of Honor. Then head up to the pool for a dip before going home!  You won’t even need a car and your day will be full of fun!

That sounds like the perfect plan for next Friday.  Follow all or part of the itinerary suggested above.  After your swim, give yourself a little time to rest and freshen up at home, then head right back downtown for FREE entertainment, tons of fun, shopping specials, and a chance to win cash and more!

We are so lucky to live in a community with all this opportunity!  Eatonton Main Street cannot wait to see you all out and about enjoying the Briar Patch next Friday!  There’s so much to do – you just have to get out and do it!  Join us, won’t you?
