Main Street Gardnerville will once again be hosting "Thirsty Third Thursday" Wine Walks every third Thursday of the month, May through September, from 4:30 - 7:30 p.m. in the downtown Gardnerville Main Street District. The deadline for businesses to sign up to participate is the first of each month. To participate in the May 17 wine walk, the deadline to submit a participation form is Tuesday.
Each Wine Walk brings out anywhere from 350-500 registered Wine Walkers to the downtown district. These numbers do not take into account the number of people who did not register because they were designated drivers or just wanted to come down to walk the streets and visit with friends and neighbors during the events. Main Street Gardnerville is hoping 2012 will bring even more people down to the district to see what they've been missing.
They will have two registration booths at opposite ends of the district this year. One on the south end of the district at our offices at 1407 Hwy 395 (next to Aladdin Flowers) and one, once again, at the Stratton Center on the north end of the district.
The cost to attend these wine walks is $5 for a 2012 commemorative glass (which can be used at all of our 2012 Wine Walks) and then $10 to register. Wine Walkers will be entered into a drawing for VIP passes for future Wine Walks.
Interested businesses within the Main Street District that would like to participate at any of these events, contact Main Street Gardnerville. Participation forms are available online on the events page at www.MainStreetGardnerville.org, or at the Main Street Gardnerville Office, 1407 Main Street.
Main Street Gardnerville is also currently looking for any entertainers that would like to perform at one or more of these events. Entertainers would be able to perform, sell CDs, and pass out information pertaining to appearances and contact information. In exchange for their performance, the entertainers' name(s) would be included in that month's press releases, newspaper ad(s), walking brochures, website, e-blasts and other Main Street Gardnerville social networking sites.
