Final "Memories of Macdonald" Tour
October 6, 2006


Free walking tours take you to the sites, sounds and stories of Richmond past, present and future. See the spots where the sidewalks were packed with people on Saturday nights, strolling to the Fox Theatre, the Elks Club or Jiggs Tavern. Recall the days when teens dragged the Main in souped-up cars and met for burgers at Gordonís Drive-In. Visit neighborhood business, scenes of civil rights protests, and an ancient Wisdom Tree in the middle of a parking lot.

Tours will focus on Richmondís Main Street area on Macdonald Avenue between 8th and 16th Streets. These programs are also a chance to share your own memories of Macdonald and thoughts about the future of Richmondís downtown.

Join us Saturday October 7th, 3-4:30 PM

All tours start at Richmondís Main Street office, 1000 Macdonald Avenue, Suite C

Light refreshments will be served.

Space is limited! Please call (510) 232-1547 to reserve your spot.

Sponsored by Rosie the Riveter/WWII Home Front National Historical Park, Richmond Community Redevelopment Agency and Richmond Main Street Initiative.
