Beacon Artist(s) wanted for street painting project

July 31, 2016

Fireball Run PosterFIREBALL RUN is coming to town, and the City of Beacon wants to roll out the welcome mat.

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@cityofbeacon.org
