A Touch of Arthur - Saturday, August 3rd, 2013


On Saturday, August 3 “A Touch of Arthur” – A Showcase of Arthur Area Products and Services will come to downtown Arthur, the Route 133 businesses corridor and the surrounding countryside businesses. This inaugural, annual event, sponsored by the Arthur Area Association of Commerce, is designed to shine the spotlight on the wide variety of area businesses and activities located in and near the community.

The AAAoC will have a hospitality tent set up on Illinois Street with information on the participating businesses. Participating Arthur Area merchants and businesses will host open houses and special sales during the day. While others will have booths set up in town and/or host open houses at their places on Route 133 as well as in the countryside. Special signs will be posted at the participating sites downtown, along Route 133 and throughout the area so you can partake in the sales, free giveaways, refreshments and more!

There will be exhibitions, demonstrations, pony rides for the kids and more. Saturday morning there will be golf carts available to take anyone interested around the downtown Arthur Area or even to do a little exploring of the tree-lined, friendly neighborhoods around town. Also on display in the downtown area will be farm equipment as well as fire protection equipment as the Arthur Volunteer Fire Department continues to celebrate their Centennial year of 2013.
