Destination Downtown Event Tonight


Main Street Russellville is hosting a special event tonight to welcome Arkansas Tech students to Downtown Russellville.

During the event, there will be food and drinks from Stoby’s and Big Star Marketplace beginning at 5 p.m.

Additionally, students will also receive goodie bags with items from many of the downtown area businesses.

From 5-8 p.m. Destination Downtown will feature live music from Affectus and Some Guy Named Robb, and there will be a street dance on the stage at Depot Park from 8-10 p.m.

A fashion show presented by III’s Company will take place at 7:30 p.m. inside the Depot.

Students will also be able to take place in a scavenger hunt from 5-8 p.m..  The scavenger hunt will take students to area businesses, and participants will have the opportunity to win Downtown Dollars by taking part in the hunt. Downtown Dollars may be used at area businesses in downtown to purchase items.

Betsey McGuire, executive director of Main Street Russellville, said, “This is our way of introducing to Tech students what local businesses have to offer. We are in such close proximity to Arkansas Tech, and we want students to see for themselves the shopping and dining opportunities available in Russellville.”

Main Street Russellville will also provide transportation to and from downtown for Arkansas Tech students who wish to participate. This begins at 4:30 p.m. at Doc Bryan.
