Celebrate Danville this Weekend

Celebrate Danville “going green” on Saturday, July 18, 2020. Downtown Danville will be extending its storefronts onto the sidewalks of Mill Street for some safe, socially-distanced dining and shopping.

Stores and restaurants will be offering sales, discounts, and specials in celebration of the opportunity to once again be open and serving customers.

Musical entertainment – sponsored by the Danville Area Arts – will be scattered up and down Mill Street for your listening pleasure. Don’t forget to show your appreciation to these talented individuals!

Get your “greens” with a visit to the Ferry Street Growers’ Market between 8 a.m. and noon.

Children are invited to participate in a contact-less Treasure Hunt all weekend long (July 18 & 19). Stayed tuned for more details on the Danville Business Alliance – and other participating stores – Facebook pages.

Bring your family for a quick bite to eat and shop or enjoy a quiet night out with your significant other at one of the delicious downtown dining establishments. Don’t forget to stick around for the fireworks to be set off at dusk!

Please keep checking the Danville Business Alliance website at www.visitdanvillepa.org and Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/DanvilleBusinessAlliance/ for more information.

Thank you to Geisinger for sponsoring this event.

As much of Pennsylvania reopens for business, rabbittransit invites you to return to ride with us!  Ride safely on our Shared Ride service by following these three guidelines:

Keep Your Hands Clean: Our vehicles are frequently sanitized for your protection, but experts say keeping your hands clean is still the best way to prevent spreading the coronavirus and other illnesses. Take advantage of the hand sanitizer available for your use on the vehicles. When possible, use the hand sanitizer upon entering and exiting the vehicle.

Maintain Social Distance & Use Contactless Payment: Plastic barriers have been installed in all vehicles to maintain social distance between the driver and riders. Riders should sit as far apart as they are able.
