The afternoon of Thursday, October 27, downtown Tullahoma will come alive with music, special sales, refreshments, open houses and two lucky individuals will walk away with $1,500 in door prizes. The activities go from noon to 6 p.m.

“Downtown Tullahoma has changed so much in the past year,” according to Mayor Lane Curlee. “The renovation work is complete with new sidewalks, lampposts, signage, flower beds, paving and striping. More improvements are planned, including trees in the planters will be added after the first freeze and seasonal banners will be added to the decorative lampposts. Plus, there are many new businesses, new managers and owners, new product lines and many new building renovations. This is a great opportunity to get out and enjoy walking around the downtown area. There is plenty of parking and a portion of Wall Street has been closed to vehicles to improve walkability and safety downtown.”

In addition, 50 downtown-area businesses are offering over $1,500 in door prizes. Visitors are encouraged to visit and register with as many participating businesses as they want. All registration forms will be collected, added together, and two lucky winners’ names will be drawn. No purchase is necessary to register. The more businesses visitors register with, the greater the chance of winning. Door prizes range from $25 gift certificates to a $275 lady’s Citizens watch donated by Giles Dunn Diamond Company. Most but not all businesses will be open until 6 pm. A listing of the 50 participating businesses is available at most downtown businesses and at tullahomatn.gov.

Music will also be an important part of the afternoon. Musicians will be performing from 3 to 6 pm at three locations: two on Lincoln Street and on Northwest Atlantic Street.

“Downtown Tullahoma has been a front door to Tullahoma for over 150 years. It’s important that continues and we make downtown even more of a destination. On a Friday night a month ago, my wife and I finished dinner at a downtown restaurant. We walked outside and there was music in four different venues downtown, and people were strolling window-shopping. Downtown Tullahoma is a nice experience and we want to make it even more of a destination. A vibrant downtown makes Tullahoma even more attractive to residents, visitors and potential investors,” offered Curlee.
