Urban Tour 2009: A big hit!

This year’s ultimate street fair took place right here on Main Street with the return of the Urban Tour on May 7, 2009. The number of expected attendees almost doubled this year with 2-3,000 guests partaking in the annual neighborhood festival.

Visitors and residents toured the area, enjoying the warm weather and relaxing sounds of Soul Food Jazz playing at Boyd Plaza in front of the Columbia Museum of Modern Art. Local restaurants and retailers opened their doors, welcoming the new patrons with free giveaways and gift certificates.

Participants eagerly made their way around the event, marking all stops on their way to the finale at the Nickelodeon Theatre for their chance to win different door prizes. Free carriage and shuttle rides were provided for those searching for a different means of travel, and Bud Light Lime offered landmarked beer stops along the way.

Capitol Places received a vast number of visitors at its own stop, where guests were treated to a variety of delicious Greek dishes, catered by Greek Boys on Sumter Street. Following the appetizers was the main course of touring a model apartment home in the historic Kress Building. Everyone was delighted to get this sneak peek into Main Street living.
