Children of all ages will enjoy visiting with the animals at the petting zoo during First Friday!
GREENVILLE, Ohio- Is your family suffering from cabin fever? If so, get out of the house and spend some quality family time together during Main Street Greenville’s First Friday event on Friday, April 3rd from 6-9 pm!
Mindy Steyer and Tamera Mcnulty volunteered to help create and plan the event for all to enjoy.“Our volunteers have created an event that will encourage families to learn more about our downtown in a fun way,” said Amber Garrett, Executive Director for Main Street Greenville.
First, the event will host a petting zoo of friendly and furry farm animals on the courthouse lawn. Sponsored by Keller Grain & Feed, the event will feature ducks, chicks and other spring baby farm animals!
In addition, Main Street Greenville has prepared a scavenger hunt for kids of all ages to explore the downtown district! The hunt will include searching for fun inflatable farm animals and answering riddles about each participating business. Sponsored by MJS Plastics Inc., the scavenger hunt will feature prizes for those who complete the challenge and also present the chance to win a $100 gift card to a downtown business of your choice! The hunt is not a race and those who wish to participate can pick-up a form at the courthouse lawn the evening of the event.
The following businesses will be featured on the downtown scavenger hunt: Youniques, Merle Norman, Pamela's Intimate Apparel, KitchenAid Experience, The Ivy League, Country Primitives, Readmore's Hallmark, The Bootery, Sweet Annie's Cabin, The Coffee Pot, Brenda's Beanery, Montage Cafe, Sadie Grace, The Bistro Off Broadway, Boutique on Broadway, First United Methodist Church (First UMC), Second National Bank, Janet's Broadway Bakery, and The Don's Pizza.
