Dog walk at River Park promotes business


The River Park Business Association put on its second annual "Pet Walk on The Avenue" in an effort to bring exposure to the downtown area.

Dr. Pat Case, Chairman of the Pet Walk on The Avenue, says the goal is "Just to get people up and down the Avenue to have a good time and to see what the businesses are about, and that River Park is a great place to shop, live and work."

Local Pastor and non-profit Coffee Shop owner Ashley Swanson believes River Park can be a destination, and events like this help promote the area. 

"Really there is an investment in this community and I think people are starting to see River Park turn around and people wanting to see River Park become something really special. And so something like this works really well," says Swanson.

Business owners are also hoping spring temperatures will provide a boost in downtown activity.
