may’s walk on washington to be a blast

You remember all the talk about “Small Business Saturday,” when shoppers were (politely!) asked to ditch the Big Box stores in favor of hometown shops? That concept is the driving force behind Walk on Washington, May 19 from 4 to 9 p.m. on Washington Road in Mt. Lebanon’s Uptown. That’s when 40 businesses are scheduled to open their doors for demonstrations, tastings, music lessons and street performances to remind us all what our merchants do best.

Admission is free and if you get your card punched by visiting shops, you can win big time door prizes. Organizers Sharon Clark of Ona Boutique and Central Square photographer Karen Sturgeon give us all the details in the May issue of mtl so make sure you check back!
