Holly Boggess, Director of the Downtown Renaissance District, oversees the program. “We do these on a quarterly basis,” Boggess said. “This is our 2nd year. We try to engage downtown businesses and make them an integral part of the event so they might capture new customers or see existing customers who can't get there during the normal workday.” The businesses stay open late and offer special discounts and prizes. The DRD provides canvas totes that are stuffed with coupons and special deals offered by the merchants. “We put additional promotional materials on upcoming events and the Downtown Farmers’ Market in the bags to let people know whats going on during the summer months as well,” Boggess said. “ It's a great opportunity to take advantage of the deals at our great local shops.” DRD partnered this time with Pennyroyal Arts Council, who washosting a Malpass Brothers performance at the Alhambra Theatre. “There was already a built-in audience downtown that day, and we wanted to build on that,” Boggess said. “We gave people a little something extra to do prior to the show. We had lots of folks from out of town and we wanted to make sure they were welcomed Ashley Chewning
