2012 Chalk Art Festival
! Well played, City. Well
played. We had a fantastic turnout again this year, so thank everybody who showed up,

Chalk Art Festival - June 9th, 2012!
The Uptown's annual Chalk Art Festival is just

priveleged enough to have hundreds of talented artists of all ages in

But perhaps you've never heard of this wonderful event? Well, the Chalk Art Festival is your opportunity to come down and make your mark on the Uptown - literally. Once you register for the event, we provide you with chalk and a sidewalk square, and you just let your imagination do the rest!
In addition there are several contests for different themes and age groups that will be judged on towards the end of the festivities - the winners of which will recieve some pretty splendid prizes.
You can pre-register for the event at any of the following locations:
Amber Rose - Cafe Connection - Octopus' Garden
We're really looking forward to seeing what everyone comes up with (c'mon video game art!) and hope to see you in a few weeks.
Dog Walk 2012 - Thanks for your support!
first ever Uptown Dog Walk has come and gone and we're happy to report that it
was a tail-wagging success thanks to everybody who came out and
Canines of all shapes and sizes converged on the Uptown Shopping Center on April, 28th to mingle with like minded pooches and pooch owners. The weather was beautiful, the sun was shining - it was a great day to be outside with your furry companion.
Another big thanks goes out to all of the different organizations who came out and supported the event. We had booths for everything, from pet adoption and boarding services, to pet photography. Great stuff all around!
One final big thank you goes to Frank Sr. of Alpha Computers for making this event a reality!
The 1st Uptown Going to the Dogs - Dog Walk: Details, and more!
Richland Uptown Dog Walk is coming up at the end of next month,
and we're happy to be posting some more details on the exciting new
We'd already announced the date and time in our last entry (Saturday, April 28th from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.) so now it's time to lay some ground rules that even Cesar Millan would be proud of.
First thing's first -- your furry companion must be leashed at ALL TIMES, and under the control of an adult 18 years or older. No more than 3 dogs per adult are allowed. If your dog(s) decide to leave any presents lying around you are responsible for cleaning up after them.
If you feel like taking your pet shopping with you, you'll need to make sure that the business you're hoping to enter allows this. We'll be providing all the businesses with signage informing you weather or not dogs are welcome, but if you're unsure, please ask a store associate before bringing them inside.
Because the Uptown is both City Park and Private, both dogs and their owners are expected to adhere to the Dog Walk Rules, and the Richland City Dog Code which is outlined in the dog walk flyer / information packet here.
We're really looking forward to hosting this event and seeing you and canine friends later next month!

Bring your favorite well behaved canine(s) down for a leisurely stroll at the Uptown Shopping Center and mingle with fellow dog lovers from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.!
More details will be posted (both here and on Facebook) as we get closer to the date of the event, so until then -- prep your leashes, kibbles, and bits, and stay tuned!
