On July 18th, On Avalon kicks off its first pilot project, featuring an installation, a small business open house, and youth-led tours. We hope to see you there between 1-3 PM, stop by Wilmington City Hall to sign in and get oriented!
This event launches the first of three pilot projects aimed to test an idea that invites you to share your current experience and future aspirations for Avalon Blvd. Explore the temporary installation, which aims to transform the pedestrian experience by demonstrating a potential environment on the sidewalk. Enjoy sidewalk furniture and 90+ drought-tolerant plants, generously sponsored and maintained by Clean Wilmington.
Small Business Open House
The first ever small business open house, with sponsorship from the Wilmington Chamber of Commerce and support from Harbor BusinessSource Center, will also be taking place along Avalon Blvd, We will have creative wayfinding signage to guide your explorations. Hint: look for something colorful and 7 feet tall! Many thanks to three businesses who will be generously offering goodies: Santa Luna, Home & Treasures Thrift Store, and Design Upholstery.
We are especially excited about our three walking & talking tours, which will be led by our amazing, locally-grown Avalon Ambassadors. These tours are also designed to engage participants in a meaningful dialogue about Avalon Blvd. Please make sure you attend a tour, which will start promptly at 1:15 PM, 1:45 PM, and 2:30 PM.
