Highest Pedestrian Counts this Summer 📈
August’s Limestone City Blues Festival was another wonderfully successful event, filling the downtown core with music fans, locals and visitors alike. Our pedestrian counter may only provide a look at the one street corner where it’s located, but it shows a clear trend over the summer- that event weekends generated an approximate 40% boost in pedestrian traffic compared to non-event summer weekends.
Our purpose is to foster an environment in which businesses can find success. Producing events that deliver potential customers to our downtown is one way we’re pursuing that goal.
