  4. Shop ~ Dine ~ Explore downtown Troy online or in-person, get BINGO, and be entered to win a bag full of goodies from our local businesses!

BINGO participants only need 4 spots filled on their game card to enter into the Prize Raffle, but just how many spots can you fill? Take the time to support neighboring businesses, stroll and taste a variety of soups throughout the downtown business district. The decadent soup and chowders range from flavors such as Chicken, White Bean and Sweet Potato Chili, French Onion to Lobster Bisque and Roasted Red Pepper with Smoked Gouda. Vegetarian options include Corn Chowder and more. As you make your way throughout downtown, be sure to check out the many boutiques, retail shops and health, beauty and wellness services. Keep an eye out for pop-up events and daily specials, for both food and retail during the event!
