ANTWERP – In an effort to encourage people to shop and visit downtown businesses, the Antwerp Chamber of Commerce has scheduled several dates that local businesses will stay open until 7 p.m. along with special events planned.

On Mondays this summer, downtown businesses will be open with the following planned special events:

• June 10 – Superhero and kids bingo

• July 8 – All American Town - with a kids’ patriotic parade

• Aug. 12 – Scavenger Hunt

• Sept. 9 – Second Annual Antwerp Dog Show

Rain date is the following Tuesday night. If it is still raining, it will not be held this month.

Businesses are encouraged to stay open those nights until 7:30 p.m. to catch people that work out of town during the day and do not have a chance to shop downtown during the week.

Home-based businesses will be in the building next to H2O to go. Stop in and browse.

June will be featuring superheroes. Various superheroes will be available that month for pictures with the kids. They are also hoping to have bingo available for the kids.
