Calling All Bacon Lovers!
Florence Main Street invites you to the 2nd Annual Downtown Bacon Crawl, Saturday, September 10th from 10am until 3pm. Everyone is invited to purchase a ticket (or two or more)! Since tickets are limited, this event will sell out quickly, so you’ll want to get your tickets as soon as possible, online (click the 2016 Bacon Crawl button on side of page) or purchase at the Main Street office, 301 North Pine Street, Monday – Friday, 8am until 5pm. Tickets are $16 online and $15 at the office.
How does the Downtown Bacon Crawl work? Participating businesses will be marked with balloons so everyone will know where they can find delicious bacon related food samples (for ticket holders only, while supplies last). “The Downtown Bacon Crawl was so much fun and such a huge success this past year. We are very excited to be doing it again! We heard from so many attendees that it was a great opportunity to visit with downtown businesses and see how alive downtown Florence really is. Giving visitors and locals a fun and unique experience by tasting delicious treats and shopping along the way is the goal.” said Molly Austin, Event Coordinator for Florence Main Street.
Check-in for the Bacon Crawl will begin at 9:30am on the corner of Court and Tennessee Streets (look for the red tents) and ‘Crawlers’ are encouraged to park in the nearby parking garage (located on Tennessee Street). At check-in, ticket holders will be given a Bacon Crawl wristband, map of participating businesses, to-go boxes and bags, and Shop Downtown cards to fill out for a chance to WIN Downtown Dollars.
“Fall is around the corner and the downtown businesses are excited to show off their Fall fashions, share new things they’ve picked up over the summer and celebrate the changing of the seasons with you. We’re hoping that Fall won’t just mean folks getting excited about school and football but also the 2nd Annual Bacon Crawl in downtown Florence” said Teryl Shields, Executive Director of Florence Main Street.
