Downtown Saturday September 26

Wow, what a great day in downtown North Attleborough. The weather was perfect for the first weekend of fall, balmy and sunny. The farmer's market was rockin', I don't think we have ever been busier, so much so we all stayed for at least an hour past the normal close. Thanks to all who stopped by to buy, check it out, chat or just take a look see; come on back every saturday thru Halloween.

Saturday was a great example of a vibrant downtown, we had the farmer's market, football, library book sale and the arts fair all going on at pretty much the same time. Sure there was fair amount of traffic, but overall you could find a place to park,(free) and spend a few hours shopping, eating and being entertained. I think that is a pretty good value. In closing I would urge everyone to support your downtown and the local merchants by continuing to visit and shop there. If you can buy in downtown you are making a greater positive economic impact then if you are buying elsewhere.
As saturday illustrated so well, a busy, excited, creative downtown can be a lot of fun; let's keep it going.
