Warehouse District open for wanderingWritten by Alissa Romstadt | | firstname.lastname@example.org
The fifth annual Wander the Warehouse District event will take place from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sept. 13 in Downtown Toledo.
“The event is designed to showcase the renovated buildings in this part of Downtown Toledo. All of the sites on this tour are historic buildings that have been renovated — most into residential space,” said President of the Toledo Warehouse District Association Diane Roe.
In addition to the seven historic sites on the tour, area restaurants and retail shops will be open for Toledoans to take the day and see what life is like in the warehouse district, Roe said.
For $10, participants can begin their tour at any of the participating sites, including St. Clair Village, Sullivan Live/Work Space, Wilson Studio, the Rideout Residence, Porter Studio, Hannon’s Block, the Guess Residence or the Oliver House. They will receive a map, a program and free reign to explore.
“Our experience has been that people are just amazed at what they find when they come down,” Roe said. “They drive down here every day and are shocked at what they find inside and what renovations have been done.”
Kicking off the attractions of the day, tour participant Ahava Spa & Wellness Center will make a “Guinness Book of Records” attempt at the most individuals gathering at once to do yoga in the street outside their building at 34 S, St Clair St., Ahava receptionist Alissa Franklin said.
Yoga participants can pre-register for the class at the Ahava Wellness Center or the Victory Center. The cost to attend the class is $15. For $30, participants will receive a yoga mat and T-shirt, Franklin said. Proceeds of the yoga class will benefit the Cancer Connection of Northwest Ohio, the Victory Center and Cherished Friends of Ahava.
