A few months ago, Parade magazine collected nominations for the Best Main Street in America. Over 2,000 downtowns were nominated, and from that group, a bracket of the top 16 towns was created. At the beginning of July, America began a voting tournament, and thanks to incredible support from the Northwest Arkansas Community, downtown Siloam Springs made it to the top four.Parade magazine (readership of 45 million) just released the printed publication of the results of this contest in the Sunday paper. Sunday’s Parade edition also featured an article by Barry Yeoman entitled “How to Revitalize Your Local Main Street” in which Siloam Springs is referenced and Main Street Siloam Springs Executive Director Meredith Bergstrom is quoted.
If you didn’t get Sunday’s paper but would still like to read all about it, you can click here for a virtual tour of Parade’s top sixteen Main Streets, and you can click here to read Yeoman’s revitalization article. There’s a lot to love in downtown Siloam Springs – we’ll see you downtown!
