I’ve been on the go the last few weeks traveling up and down not only Ada’s Main Street, but also on Main Streets across the state. Recently, I represented Ada Main Street at the Annual Oklahoma Statewide Preservation Conference in Tahlequah. Preservation and sustainability are crucial to the survival of downtown districts such as our Main Street. By making sure existing buildings are being maintained and being reused adaptively, we can be assured our downtown landscape will be here for generations to come.
Our next event flows right along with that theme of reuse and recycling! I am so excited to see all of the restored vehicles that will roll in for Ada Main Street’s 3rd Annual Cruising Main event on July 6th. Participants are invited to cruise from 6-9 pm and I invite everyone to join Ada Main Street for a family friendly night of fun. The McSwain Theatre will be showing the classic movie “Grease” at 8:00.
Ticket prices to the movie are $2.00 for children 12 and under, senior citizens $2.00 and general admission $3.00. Tickets will be available at The McSwain’s box office.
I’d also like to remind everyone of the numerous dining options downtown. Come out for the cruise and have dinner at one of the many restaurants located on Main Street. Boomerang Diner, Dairy Lou, Grandpa’s Catfish, Hamburger King, Hot Shots, Papa Gjorgjo’s, Polo’s, Vintage 22, and Subway are some of the dining options from which to choose. Many merchants will also be open late so plan on coming to Main Street for dinner and staying around to browse the shops. Bring lawn chairs if you’d like to watch the cruise from the sidelines and stop by the Ada Main Street office for cold drinks and give-aways!
Don’t miss this chance to “drag Main!”
