On September 28, forty driving teams will roar onto Main Street Beacon on their “quest for under-discovered places and obscure historical artifacts” as part of this long-running reality tv series.
Mayor Randy Casale and his team are looking to do something really special and specific to Beacon – one idea was to paint the street; other ideas are welcome and there is a small budget to help make your vision a reality.
If you are interested, please be in touch with Mayor Randy Casale and/or his assistant Elizabeth Evans at cityofbeacon
