The Costume Crawl will take place every second Thursday of each month beginning at 6pm.
The crawls will each be themed, although it is anticipated that there will be some unexpected, fun, liberal interpretations on the theme directions.
Many remember the well-loved Gallery Crawls from bygone days, where guests and locals alike would wander, pop in and out of shops and galleries and enjoy the local street scene.
Credit to some of our creative, local NoDa business owners for getting plans together for a monthly, themed Crawl plus special streetside activities (think drum circle and more!).
Come as you are, or make your mark with your interpretation of each month’s theme. We hope to see you on the 14th to make some NoDa history and inaugurate this new event.
Every business in NoDa is encouraged to get creative and use the event to help drive traffic to their location and to the neighborhood in general. Plus, the opportunities for social media reach out with the costuming component of the event are expected to be far reaching.
Besides potential restaurant and bar features, the neighborhood is bringing back street vendors, street performers and even drum circles to join in the festivities. Expect this to grow over time as the monthly event takes off.
The vision for the crawls is for visitors and locals in NoDa to be able to express themselves through costuming and have a fun, unique experience interacting in our neighborhood. The launch team is hopeful for a high-energy, enjoyable night each month where costumed individuals mix with others and everyone gets a laugh, takes some pictures, and enjoys the street scene in our town even a little more.
