While the final numbers aren’t in, ticket sales for this year’s Sunday on the Town event were “softer” than previous years.
The annual event is billed as a chance to showcase downtown restaurants, retail and culture – as well as to raise money for the Colorado Springs Philharmonic.
This year, 21 restaurants offered samples of their cuisine and the streets were stages for live music and arts performances.
Tickets cost between $25 and $30, depending on when they were purchased, but getting shoppers and diners to buy into the idea has been a challenge.
“We are still tallying all the final numbers,” said Denise Shaw, who coordinated the event for the Downtown Partnership. “I can tell you that attendance was a little down from previous events.”
Final numbers are expected to be available later this week.
