Put On Your Blue Suede Shoes & Play Puzzle Palooza
Thursday in Downtown Summerville
Summerville DREAM (Downtown Restoration, Enhancement and Management) invites everyone to celebrate Valentine’s month by having a date with Historic Downtown Summerville on Thursday, Feb. 21 from 5–8 p.m.
Have dinner, stroll the streets and visit the shops while playing Puzzle Palooza with your friends and family.
While you are making your rounds, enjoy the music of our special guest Elvis at Hutchinson Square. Elvis impersonator Michael Viljac (www.viljac.com) will get things “All Shook Up,” singing some of our favorites from the King from 6-7:30 p.m.
“This will be the third year for Puzzle Palooza” says Alix Kassing, DREAM Promotions Chair.
“It’s been a very popular event. Phone calls started in January with folks asking when they could get their maps. The Grand Prize this year will be $500 in DREAM gift certificates, redeemable at dozens of Summerville businesses. Five runners-up will receive $100 in gift certificates,” says Kassing.
The game will begin at 10 a.m. Thursday and run through closing on Saturday. Players can pick up their game boards at People, Places & Quilts on West Richardson or at Four Green Fields on Short Central. Thirty-five downtown businesses will host the event as puzzle stops. Participating businesses will have the “Puzzle Palooza” logo in their window.
Players must collect a piece from each business put them in the correct order to reveal the picture or message. Bring the completed puzzle to the lobby of First Citizens Bank at 218 S. Main Street and deposit it in the collection box by 5 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 25. All the correct entries will be put into a drawing for the $500 Grand Prize and $100 runners-up.
Puzzle Palooza is made possible by DREAM, the participating businesses with special thanks to the Taylor Agency, People, Places & Quilts, Guerin’s Pharmacy, Four Green Fields Gallery, Art Central and of course, the players.
So put on your Blue Suede Shoes, pack up your Teddy Bear and head to downtown Summerville. Nobody should be Lonesome on this night.
