An Update on Durant Main Street
Durant Main Street had a huge turn out at Colton’s Run on October 19th. There were 899 runners and lots of volunteers. Dena and Trace Sherrill put a lot of work into this event and they did such a great job! They will be distributing defibrillators to surrounding schools, and the bleachers will be going up in Colton’s Field soon. This event couldn’t have been possible without all of the sponsors, volunteers, and runners. Colton’s Run was exciting and Durant Main Street was grateful to have been a part of it.
The Durant Downtown Art Walk will be held the first Thursday of each month. The next walk will be November 7th starting at 5:00 p.m. The participating businesses will have a yellow flag in front of their business. The artist will either be inside or in front of the business. We have a lot of October's artists returning along with several new artists. New artists are: Hal Johnson, Jennifer Brewer, Dana Blackwell, Dick Carson, Mary Rixen, and James Ingram. There will be paintings, pottery, photography, Christmas ornaments, wreaths, jewelry, music, comedy and much more.Local artisans handcraft all items for sale. Alvina Ralls from The Country Framer has played a huge role in this event. There has been lots of positive feedback from participants in regards to the first Art Walk. This is a fun way for you to support local artists and our downtown shops.
We are also gearing up for our Christmas festivities. Downtown Holiday is scheduled for December 7th and the Shopping Spree Giveaway is set for December 17th. There are lots of exciting events to finish off the year and we hope to see you all at these events.
Durant Main Street would also like to point out a few of our members because our members help to make the downtown events possible. Two of our newest members are The Noisy Goose and 2nd Street Salon. The Noisy Goose has a wide array of items from clothing to food. The 2nd Street Salon is a salon that has a historic feel to it. If you haven’t stopped by these two businesses, you’re definitely missing out. Not only do we appreciate our newest members, but our loyal members are appreciated as well. Rustin Concrete and Steger Lumber are two of our oldest members and we thank you for your continued support! Thank you to all of our members!
