Chamber to hold ‘Big Summer Blow Out’ event July 18 downtown

The Atmore Area Chamber of Commerce with the support of our 2019 Trustees will hold the first “BIG SUMMER BLOW OUT” in Atmore on Thursday, July 18, 2019. This event will begin with an after-hours shopping event downtown from 5-7 p.m., incorporate a downtown community lead walking audit from 5:30–6:45, include a community bike parade starting at 7:15 and conclude with an after- hours community Splash Pad Glow Party from 7-9 p.m.

At the conclusion of the after-hours shopping event and walking audit community members are asked to participate in a bike parade which will begin between First National Bank & Trust and The Yellow Garden. The bike parade will begin at 7:15 when we enjoy a ride down Trammell Street to the Splash Pad using a temporary bike lane.

A free event for all to attend, participants will be able to help support Youth Leadership Atmore by purchasing a dinner plate of hot dogs, chips, and drink from Pepsi-Cola Bottling Co. of Atmore.
