East Troy Connect Communities announces the calling for the GIANT POSTCARD mural trail submissions.

This is a FREE to enter event

A new spin on the traditional mural trail – the Giant Postcard program, created in Stockton, California is being implemented in East Troy, Wisconsin through a collaborative partnership with the Village of East Troy, the Chamber of Commerce, the East Troy Economic Development Alliance and the East Troy Connect Communities.  This program is strategically designed to encourage people to take selfies and share them on social media.  The project will eventually feature 20 giant “postcards” at sites intended to draw pedestrians through the Village while also providing education about local history and culture.
