GADSDEN – Every October folks from all around Gadsden get together to have a little fun and raise a few funds to support the cities vibrant and vital downtown area.
The event is called Sunset Sips and this year it will be taking place on a Tuesday, this Tuesday in fact, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., on the Gadsden Memorial Bridge overlooking the Coosa River.
As the name implies there will be both wine and a sunset to take in. The wine will be provided by Stone Market Wine. The sunset will be provided from on high. There will be hor’dourves and music as well.
Sunset Sips is sponsored by Downtown Gadsden Incorporated. Downtown Gadsden is an organization dedicated to keeping the downtown area alive and full of fun with attractions such as galleries, museums, fine eating, fast eating and shopping that caters to boutique, vintage and modern tastes.
Downtown Gadsden also promotes such events as Sunset Sips, First Fridays (an event where classic cars and food venders’ line up on the main drag) and this month will be sponsoring a Howl-o-Weenie Pawty; where costumed doggies can come to participate in a parade and costume contest!
