Some of the most popular events in the region will be here before you know it – Merchants and Artists Walks in downtown Marietta. ReStore Marietta’s Mallory Greenham tells WMOA News an extra event has been added for 2013.
“We’ve decided to add a new date to our Merchants and Artists lineup. We added a new one in May. We feel like the weather is nice and we’ll have our hanging flower baskets up. So, why not get the community out?  Everyone has a little bit of cabin fever, so come see your neighbors and do some shopping.  And, check out some of the new artists we have in the lineup this year.”
Greenham says they are looking at other entertainment options as well.
“We’re looking at some live music components to be strategically placed around town. The Peoples Bank Theatre is going to be booking some entertainment on Putnam Street. We have a few additional merchants that are coming on board this year, so we’ll have a lot more places with the extended hours. We’ve actually had a lot of interest from new artists that we’ve never had on the walk before. Even if you’ve come out in the past, it’s definitely going to look and feel a little different this year.”
And Greenham says there are still available places for artists on the walks this year.
“You can reach out to ReStore Marietta to get an application.  You can call us by phone at 740-885-8194 or check out our web site at restoremarietta.org
"We have five Merchants and Artists walks this year, so you can choose to participate in one, two, all five of them – as many as you’d like. The entrance fee is ten dollars per event, and there is a slight discount if you decide to sign up for all five. We do local or regional artists, as long as it’s a handmade, local craft.”
