Looks like the City of Douglasville has been reading my blog–at least the post about drawing more crowds to historic downtown.  And great that they’re incorporating the rained-out Taste of Douglasville into this as well!  Found this on  prlog.org, however, visitdouglasville.com doesn’t have it listed yet:

The day is filled with great food, fun, and an array of entertainment including live music and cooking demonstrations. Over 20 local restaurants will offer a variety of “tastes” so everyone can experience the fantastic flavors of Douglasville. Tickets are $1 each and will be sold at the event at the ticket booth. Each “taste” ranges from 1-4 tickets. With face painting, arts and crafts, treasure hunts, sand art, and more, the kids will have plenty of activities to participate in on the plaza. There will even be special children’s cooking demonstrations.

Entertainment on the main stage kicks off with Douglasville’s Got Talent, a talent show showcasing local and regional performers. Then the Inner Harbor AmeriCorps Drumming Band will take the stage energizing the crowd followed by the acoustical sounds of Dustin Benefield. The night of entertainment will be wrapped up by Turnstile treating the audience to original and cover band rock, alternative, and pop music.

So be sure to wear your elastic wasted pants and bring out the entire family and Hit the Bricks on Saturday, July 18th at the 2009 Taste of Summer!

2009 Taste of Summer begins at 1:00 p.m. and will continue until 9:00 p.m. in Downtown Douglasville. For more information on the 2009 Taste of Summer, please contact Kimberly Weaver at weaverk@ci.douglasville.ga.us or 678-715-6095. All Downtown Douglasville event information may be found on the Douglasville CVB website http://www.visitdouglasville.com.

A portion of the proceeds raised by ticket sales will go to the Cultural Arts Council of Douglasville/Douglas County. The mission of the Cultural Arts Council Douglasville & Douglas County is to nurture, guide and stimulate the enjoyment of and participation in the arts among Douglas County residents and visitors by providing an atmosphere conducive to the arts, broadening the spectrum of quality exhibits and performances available to the community, and fostering individual interactions with the arts through a wide range of satellite groups.
