The town and Discover Danville are on a Shop Danville campaign as they help residents discover the fun of shopping locally. They not only want people to frequent downtown to contribute to its vibrancy but they want residents to shop here because local sales tax dollars help finance Danville amenities.
For the last few years, other cities in the vicinity have been revitalizing their downtown areas in efforts to lure local residents. Danville has responded by making an effort to create even more of an appealing, lively downtown with attractive landscaping, places to sit and a venue that suggests "small town charm, sophisticated choices."
Discover Danville's summer Thursday evening events are a great way to show residents what downtown has to offer in addition to providing a fun evening for all. Next on the agenda are another free Summer Serenade Shop Local Street Festival the evening of Thursday, Aug. 6; and an Art and Wine Stroll from 6-9 p.m. Aug. 13, which costs $25 but includes wine and trolley rides to and from downtown, the Livery and the Rose Garden.
Many people cannot take time to explore while rushing about on their daily business: These evenings are geared toward relaxation and discovering Danville.
