Annual PawPrints painting set for Aug. 21

The annual PawPrints painting event will be Aug. 21, beginning at 8 a.m. at the intersection ofpawprints.small Bay and Ocean Sts. in downtown Jacksonville. Jaxson de Ville will be on hand to cheer painters, who will paint paw prints on the streets from Bay to EverBank Field. The annual event that helps kick off the Jaguars’ first pre-season home game, is sponsored by the Downtown Council of the Jacksonville Regional Chamber of Commerce. The council is primarily comprised of small business owners, says council member Bonnie Arnold, owner of Bonnie’s Floral Designs.

Painting the path to the stadium will take less than two hours, said Arnold, who encourages all small business owners to team up and show up in comfortable shoes, old clothes, a hat, and team spirit. Painters will be treated to coffee, orange juice, bagels, and donuts, and water and ice will be provided along the route. Once the painting is done, there will be a party, which will also include mimosas.

The event is sponsored in part by Geer Services, My Best Friend’s Closet, Duval Paint, Martin Coffee, Hyatt Regency Jacksonville Riverfront, and Bailey Publishing.

For more information, to reserve a spot on a painting team, or to create your own team, contact Arnold at 904-346-3300 or 904-699-0961.
