Alamo Walk-About returns to mingle residents with merchants

Community Foundation fundraiser set for 5-8 p.m. Thursday

Alamo residents, merchants and businesses are set to turn out for the Community Foundation of Alamo's second annual Alamo Walk-About this Thursday along Danville Boulevard.

Scheduled to run from 5-8 p.m., the Alamo Walk-About will give local residents a chance to mingle with downtown businesses, listen to music and stroll through restaurants that will offer wine, beer and food.

"The goal of the Alamo Walk-About is to bring community members to the downtown, to discover the variety of merchants and businesses located there, while having a fun time strolling or riding around the town," foundation representatives said in a statement.

Unlike the inaugural Walk-About last October, this week's second installment will be held earlier in the evening and entirely during daylight hours.

Participants can purchase tickets in advance for $20 and $25 at the event. Ticket-holders will receive a wristband, a beverage glass, a canvas shopping bag, a merchant participant map and transportation via trolley to the merchants' locations.

Participating businesses include Alamo Ace Hardware, Alamo Grill, Alamo World Travel, A-List Publications, Color Bundles, Don Jose's Mexican Restaurant, Extreme Ale House, Galileo Learning Centers, Hospice Thrift Shoppe, Intero Chiropractic,, Loard's Ice Cream, Magbitang Financial, Oak Hill Properties, Poplar Spectacles Optometry, Richards Arts & Crafts, Rite Aid, RJ's Asian Cuisine, State Farm-Nathan Mahlik, Subway and World of Sound & Vision.
