Ewenique Art Walk takes over streets

The Pendleton County Tourism Council (PCTC) was met with enthusiastic cheers as they herded sheep into Downtown Falmouth this past Saturday, Sept. 16, 2017 at the Second Annual Ewenique Art Walk. Yes, you heard that right - sheep! There’s no need to fear these sheep running out into the road, however, because they are frozen in time in the form of fiberglass sculptures, the next phase of public art in Pendleton County.

Following last year’s successful inaugural event, the PCTC sought to grow the Art Walk with more craft vendors, engaging arts activities for kids of all ages, live performances, promoting brick and mortar businesses downtown, and more. The event not only grew in terms of programming, but also in size. The 2016 event spanned Shelby Street from Main to Chapel. This year’s event doubled in size, spanning Shelby from Main to Maple.
