Businesses throughout downtown Bradenton are adding large wall and window decals to their buildings to show as part of Realize Bradenton's "Love This City" campaign. "Love This City" festivities will begin at a kick-off celebration at the Downtown Bradenton Public Market on Saturday, Nov. 13, from 9-a.m.-p.m. on Old Main Street. The 50-plus weekly market vendors will be joined by a community art project, scavenger hunts, the Made Here Craft Show, and the return of "Chef at the Market" with a chef from Mattison's Riverwalk Grille.
Self-guided scavenger hunts are available online for a fun way to explore the Riverwalk, Village of the Arts, and downtown Bradenton. Each hunt has a unique Love This City prize and a grand prize is available for people who complete all three scavenger hunts. Realize Bradenton has also created a holiday gift guide, showcasing local small businesses to support this season.
The campaign continues through May 2022.
