Paris Mini-Golf Course rescheduled in Downtown, Paris Texas
“Paris Texas Main Street Project’s board members are excited to announce they have rescheduled the second Downtown Mini Golf Challenge,” said Main Street Board Chair Glee Emmite. He is referring to the event that they initially scheduled in March.
“In partnership with the Paris Downtown Association, Main Street has rescheduled the event for June 26 and 27. This event includes a handmade mini-golf course outside of participating businesses.
During the event, participants will putt at 15 different golf greens. Each location will have a “theme” green built for this event. Participants are highly encouraged to bring their putters and balls. However, the game also provides them. Participants will also be able to shop at the retail shops and restaurants.
Golfers with a hole-in-one on any green and specific low scores go into a raffle on Saturday, and you need not be present to win. Raffle items include rounds of golf provided by Pine Ridge Golf Course and Paris Golf and Country Club.
Admission to the event is $5.00 per adult, and children 13 and under are free with an adult. One dollar ($1) of each wristband purchase with money donated to the Downtown Food Pantry. After last year’s event, the Main Street Advisory board gave $400 to the downtown food pantry.
Wristbands, putters, and balls can be picked up on the east side of the downtown Plaza beginning at 4:45 pm on Friday, June 26, and be available until 7:30 pm. Sales will resume Saturday, June 27 at 10:45 am. One admission is valid for both Friday evening and Saturday. Participating downtown restaurants are offering mini-golf specials, both Friday and Saturday, to all participants wearing a wrist band.
“We are pleased to be able to offer an outdoor, safe, fun, and family-friendly event,” says Cheri Bedford, Main Street Coordinator. “We’ve modified the event for the current situation using safety precautions and are anticipating people having a good time in downtown.
First Federal Community Bank and the Lamar County Health Department are the major sponsors of the event. For more information, call Paris Main Street at 903-784-9293 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
