TR Town & Art Crawl: A Political Debate Like None Other
by Lacey Eibert Keigley
In what has become a wonderful TR tradition, we have loved being involved with this year’s TR Town & Art Crawl.
November 3 marks the next to last Town & Art Crawl of the season and it’s going to be great one.
Come on out on November 3 on Friday night from 5 to 9 pm and spend your evening on Main Street in Travelers Rest.
Visitors can pick up a Crawl Card at many of the local businesses which will give you a map and access to special deals and promotions happening during the crawl event. Remember this is the LAST month to fill in your crawl card. It doesn’t matter if you get one or twelve stickers, turn in your crawl card by November 10th to the TR Makers Co. and you are entered for a chance to win the $100 town gift certificate! (That’s a pretty sweet deal, y’all.)
We’ve had Town & Art Crawls with the best ice cream and the best BBQ and all sorts of other fun features.
November is election month and for Travelers Rest that means a new mayor for our town, as well as several candidates running for city council seats.
This month for the Town & Art Crawl we talk with the candidates running for city council and mayor in an event we are calling “Town Talks: A Not So Political Debate”. This is your chance to ask the hard hitting, not so political questions like “Who’s your favorite Beatle?” or “When visiting the mountains what is the one thing you make sure to bring?”
We need your HELP! If you have a great question for the candidates, send it to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Keep your questions on the not-so-political side and get to know your candidates better. Find out what makes them laugh and what brings a smile to their face. Ask them about their favorite vacation and the last book they read. Maybe you want to know what their phone’s screen saver is or if they have a tattoo that says “mom” on their ankle.
Then come out to the crawl November 3rd and listen in to see if the candidates answer your question.
All the fun happens crawl night, November 3rd at 6:30 on the Gazebo green space. Remember to get out and vote Tuesday, November 7th! You really can make a difference in how your small town grows.
Need a ride or quick way to get from one end of the crawl to the other, hail a rickshaw! Call 864-373-1222 to snag a ride.
