Last Friday night I had the opportunity to participate in the Chandler Art Walk. This event happens every third Friday of the month and as I found out it is quite the event. There were over 65 artist and craft persons showing their craft from original art to handmade items.
What I found gratifying was that our little city of Chandler, Arizona supports their downtown area and their Small Businesses. The event only lasted from 6 pm to 10 pm but there were lots of couples, families and groups of friends there for the evening strolling up and down the sidewalks taking it all in and buying the crafts and art. Plus many were having dinner at one of the local restaurants, bistros and tea shops. There was something to see and do for everyone no matter what the age!!
If your town or city is not doing this, get involved. Call your local Chamber of Commerce or Town Hall and find out how they and you can support your town and most important the local Small Business.
