cinco de mayo pub crawl

Get ready for the fiesta of the year - our Cinco de Mayo Pub Crawl!

On Thurs, May 5th, thirteen bars and restaurants are participating in what will be the biggest crawl that  Downtown Alton has seen yet! Check in anytime after 4pm to get your pub crawl t-shirt at Bluff City Grill (102 W. 9th St.) A passport that directs participants on this self-guided event will list all of the food & beverage specials, festive entertainment and giveaways. Simply drop your passport with the bartender anytime before 10pm.

Exciting prizes will be up for grabs, and one lucky participant will win a pair of infield box seats to see the St. Louis Cardinals play the Arizona Diamondbacks on May 22nd, donated by Donnewald Distributing. (Face value is $143/each!) Participants will be placed into the drawing one time for every establishment on the passport where they’ve made a purchase of food, merchandise, alcoholic or non-alcoholic beverage.

Downtown Alton is always a great time, but on these special occasions it’s our job to take the party to the next level. New this year, we’ve added photo scavenger hunts to capture all of the great memories being made during the crawls. Attendees will find the list of poses to stage on the back of their passport, and a basket full of margarita fixings will be awarded to the first person to post all of the photos to our hashtag  on social media: #AltonPubCrawls2016

Alton’s Best Cabs will be offering free rides between participating bars & half-price rides to get attendees home safely; simply show your passport to the driver.   

Don’t forget to mark your calendar for the next crawl in the series—an Independence Day themed event on Sun, July 3rd
