Tie Dye the Town 2015

Tie Dye the Town 2015

Local businesses are once again encouraged to Tie Dye the Town in preparation for the annual Beatles at the Ridge festival, set for Sept. 18 and 19 in downtown Walnut Ridge.

Tie Dye the Town is an exciting way that local businesses can show their support and welcome visitors to the Beatles at the Ridge festival. The competition includes both an interior and exterior display division. Displays can have a Beatles theme or a Rock N Roll theme.

Businesses who would like to be judged for a chance to receive the traveling trophy as this year’s champion must register with the Chamber of Commerce Office (870-886-3232) by Thursday, Sept. 10. Judging will take place Friday, Sept. 11.

Winners will be chosen by out-of-county judges and will be announced in the Sept. 16 issue of The Times Dispatch.
