The upcoming changes in store for downtown Cape Girardeau are putting the area on the path to revitalization. Several new businesses are slated to open in downtown Cape Girardeau in the coming months, including Minglewood Brewery and The Bar.

Marla Mills, executive director of Old Town Cape, thinks the creativity being engaged in the area with everything from the art to entrepreneurship is making it a place open to new ideas.

Downtown Cape Girardeau may get a fresh coat of paint- if it gets enough votes. The Benjamin Moore paint company selected Cape Girardeau as a candidate for getting three downtown blocks painted through its “Main Street Matters” program. The top twenty cities in an online poll will win.

Old Town Cape project manager Nicholle Hinkle says this is the first time Benjamin Moore has sponsored this type of contest.

Tunes At Twilight Returns On Friday

May 15, 2013

Downtown Cape Girardeau will once again be filled with the sound of music this spring when Tunes At Twilight will returns on Friday at 7 p.m.

The concert series is held for six weeks every spring and fall. Old Town Cape executive director Marla Mills says the concert series was started over ten years ago to encourage locals to come together for a fun and relaxing evening. These days, Old Town Cape hopes to maintain Tunes At Twilight as a family-friendly event.
