Paying tribute to the many years that Ernest Hemingway spent growing up in Petoskey, Downtown Petoskey is set to host A Moveable Feast, a weekend of fun, fall activities modeled around Hemingway’s hobbies. Activities take place Friday and Saturday, October 17th and 18th.
On Friday, kick off the weekend at the launch party for Petoskey’s Restaurant Week at City Park Grill with a Hemingway Happy Hour, 4:30-6pm. Step back in time with Hemingway inspired cocktails, door prizes, half off appetizers and music by Sean Bielby. There is a suggested donation at the door with proceeds going to Manna Food Pantry with City Park Grill matching donations up to $500. Join us on Lake Street at 6pm for Squash Bowling! Take your pick of squash and roll for a turkey to win Downtown Treasure Certificates.
Lace up your shoes for the Saturday morning Fun Run with the Bulls! The 3-ish mile fun run starts in Pennsylvania Park by Bay Street, follows the new Downtown Pathway by Arlington Street, loops through Bay View, and finishes back in Pennsylvania Park. Registration starts at 8am, the fun run starts at 9am. Entry fee is $10, each participant gets a set of bull horns. Runners, walkers, and strollers are welcome. Runners who beat the bull will get a Downtown Treasure!
And finally all day Friday and Saturday, participate in the Selfies for Shopping contest by feasting your eyes on the Downtown Petoskey’s merchant windows during A Moveable Feast! Stroll from window to window searching out the local fall produce item, snap a selfie in front of the window, and upload it to the Facebook Event Page, A Moveable Feast, with the hashtag #PetoskeyFeast. Check back Monday, October 20th to see if your selfies are prize winners of Downtown Treasure Certificates!
