The Loopapalooza! One great event that celebrates two great downtowns! The Downtown Business Association struck gold, in my opinion, when Samantha Schwartz proposed that the city converges many of the areas businesses with the arts community in order to highlight the transportation of choice to get you around town and back again, The Loop. Community Artists of Bethlehem were delighted to be invited in on this venture by DBA representative and Eskandalo business owner, Alison Leigh.

As one of the many wonderful stops along the route, a do not miss is “Go Green Town”.

GGT is the earth friendly, sustainability educating, recycled art lover, and local music enthusiasts’ best friend. The event will be conveniently located near Campus Square at New and Morton Streets. Festivities will begin at 2pm and go on until 7pm, at which time participants can relocate to one of three finale events. While at the stop “Loopy” guests can enjoy demos on earth friendly practices such as composting, participate in a mosaic mural using recycled materials, sift through forgotten treasures in a ” Second Time Around” clothing sale, and shop the many local art vending booths as well as some of the areas best independent business booths all while sampling some of the areas most talented musicians that will have you dancing in the streets…literally. Among the line-up will be Muppet’s Bubbles of Bliss Band (of The Big Dirty), Trouble City All-Stars (reggae roots) and Slingshot Dakota.

Please visit us for the ultimate collaboration of creative thinkers, independent entrepreneurs and eco-conscious planners. Find out how you can become more involved in the ever-evolving process of becoming more active in your community that truly makes Bethlehem “Glitter”.
