Bandon is open! This is the second year of Bandon’s Alive After Five which brought an increase in local business participation and added a wine walk to the seasonal 3rd Friday of the month event. This is part of the local events organized and sponsored by the Greater Bandon Association a non-profit group of local business members whose mission is “working to revitalize our local community and economy by building upon our history and culture and to preserve Bandon’s historic assets.” Money raised by the Greater Bandon Association is donated to other local events that highlight and increase traffic for the local business community. The money from the Alive After Five event will go towards the Bandon Tree Lighting and a special Alive After Five event on Small Business Saturday on November 29th.
Beach Loop Realty is partnering with this month’s Alive After Five sponsor, Billy Smoothboars, and setting up at the wind shelter on the boardwalk on Friday the 17th, 5 PM to 7 PM. Billy Smoothboars will have samples of their food available, along with the Alive After Five commemorative glasses for purchase, and a map of the participating merchants to visit on your walk in Old Town. Be sure to visit every merchant for special in store deals or prizes.
Be on the look out for skeleton keys with a Beach Loop Realty keychain hidden among the Alive After Five merchants. If you find one, bring it back to the wind shelter and visit the Beach Loop Realty table to unlock your prize. We will have 10 keys to find and 10 gift certificates up for grabs.
