As part of the Art in the Alley celebration in downtown Bolivar Saturday, May 9, five loft apartments will be open from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. for tours.
“We want to feature the unique character of downtown lofts in our community,” said Justin Ballard, owner of four of the apartments on the tour and coordinator of the loft walk. “I have had a lot of people asking me when they will get to see the apartments. This is an opportunity to see a variety of downtown lofts including the recently renovated ones.”
Tickets cost $5 per person and are available at the Tea Garden, Roweton’s Home Center and Village Boutique on the square, as well as the Bolivar Herald-Free Press office on South Springfield Avenue. Tickets also can be purchased the day of the event. Proceeds benefit the Downtown Bolivar Association, sponsor of Art in the Alley and the Bolivar Loft Walk.
During the loft walk, ticket holders will present their ticket at any one of the loft locations in exchange for an armband that will allow entry to all lofts.
The lofts included in the walk are at 114 S. Springfield and 120 S. Springfield Ave., owned by Justin and Ashley Ballard; and 104 W. Jackson St., owned by Randy and Renee Bowman.
“Many people don't even know there are loft apartments in Bolivar,” Ballard said. “Second-floor apartments are not reserved for large cities. It's a trend that the DBA hopes will keep growing in our community.”
