Three times a year Community Development hosts Sip & Stroll with me, as preview evenings to other events in Bowie, Texas. Merchants register to participate sponsoring mini-open house for shoppers and guests. It is a fun way to support our community and the businesses that make it great.
Outdoor Movie Nights
Three times a summer - June, July, and August - Community Development hosts a free outdoor movie downtown in the parking lot at the corner of Mason and Tarrant Streets. These events are family friendly. Community Development provides concessions including hot dogs, popcorn, and other refreshments.
Blue Saturday - Shop Small
On the Saturday following Thanksgiving, Community Development teams up with the Bowie Chamber of Commerce to host Blue Saturday Shop Small encouraging everyone to spend your dollars with local businesses. This movement is sponsored by American Express.
Hanging of the Greens Every November, Community Development and volunteers decorate the downtown area with lighted Christmas wreaths and garland. Various civic organizations as well as school groups work together during this festive event. It promotes the holiday just in time for the lighted Christmas parade held the first Saturday in December each year.
