Arcade's Main & More highlights local merchants
Wyoming County Chamber & Tourism and the Arcade Area Chamber of Commerce are set to once again host Arcade’s Main & More event from 4 to 7:30 p.m. Oct. 5. Beginning and ending at the Arcade Chamber office – 228 Main St. – visitors can meander along Main Street for an evening of visiting merchants and their partnering businesses.
The concept is simple, Main Street businesses partner with off-Main Street businesses, giving visitors the opportunity to learn more about local merchants in the area. Planned activities include music, door prizes, wine tastings, a car seat check, a hurricane relief fundraiser, and more.
At the beginning of their journey, event-goers will receive a map listing participating businesses. With a map in hand, participants are encouraged to visit every location listed where they receive a “check-in” stamp. When the map is completed, revelers are entered to win door prizes donated by the participating merchants.
A $10 “swag bag” is also available, but it must be pre-purchased through the website www.wycochamber.org. Commemorative event glasses will be available for $5 each the night of the event. The event is free and includes refreshments at stops throughout the event.
“This is always a fun event that brings customers to downtown businesses and offers a unique opportunity to learn more about what is available from the local business community. It’s also a great time mingling with friends and neighbors,” said Chamber & Tourism President Scott Gardner.
“By combining the off-Main and Main Street businesses, both the business owners and customers get the opportunity for exposure and networking. This has been a very successful event in past years, and I thank everyone involved for making it another great success.”
