Never too early to start thinking about the weekend is what I say…

This weekend, on Saturday, July 12, Mt. Pleasant Main Street will be showing Shrek in Spanish with English subtitles as part of their Films in the Park summer series. The movie will be shown in, you guessed it, Lamont Park (same place as the Mt. Pleasant Farmer’s Market).

The movie will begin at 9:00pm, but don’t miss the Independent Business Celebration beforehand at 7:00pm. (If you can’t tell already, independent business is something we celebrate everyday here at Climbing the Mount.) What is this celebration all about? From our friends over at the Main Street offices: “How well do you know Mt. Pleasant? Play “Buy Local Bingo” and test your knowledge of the local businesses on Mt. Pleasant Street. Win prizes from Dos Gringos, Boveda Tribes and more! Bingo starts at 7:30pm!” Bingo?? I’m in!

Also, if you’re looking to volunteer (and I know some of you are judging from our poll), Main Street is still looking for some help setting up before the movie and cleaning up after the movie, as well as for some volunteers to work a table during the Farmer’s Market that morning. If you’re interested in volunteering, email Karen at
