New Downtown Attraction Coming

There’s a new attraction coming to the downtown, starting August 5th.
Every Friday, food vendors will be set up on the front lawns of City Hall from 11 a.m. to  to 2 p.m., serving up a feast for the masses.
“I have always said that the area in front of City Hall is the best front yard in the city,” says Mayor Lyn Hall. “Foodie Fridays helps to make use of that, and gives the thousands of people who work in the downtown area a pleasant, social, outdoor place to go for a casual lunch.”
It’s an idea that was cooked up by some staff at the City, who have seen it done elsewhere.
Several vendors have assigned on to the idea, such as the Frozen Paddle, Spicy Greens, Smokehouse on the Run and Shiraz Cafe and Restaurant.  though the City welcomes anyone who wishes to participate.
“I am very happy that the City of Prince George is undertaking this new initiative because it is a chance to show off the diversity of Prince George’s downtown and I encourage all businesses to support it,” says Reza Akbari, owner of Shiraz Café and Restaurant.
Several vendors have already been identified to take part, but any other interested restaurants or food vendors are encouraged to contact Deanna Wasnik with the City at 250-561-7688 if the want to get on board.
