DVA launches mural tours

Mural tours are back this summer in downtown Vernon

Mural tours are back this summer in downtown Vernon.

With two volunteer tour guides in place, free guided mural tours are now being offered to those who are interested in learning more about the stories behind the murals. Tours are available Tuesday and Friday mornings and they must be pre-booked through the Downtown Vernon Association office.

Khushali Mashruwala and Taeus Brandt are the mural tour guides.

“These tours are perfect for so many different groups,” said Mashruwala,

“Art lovers, locals looking for insights on their hometown’s past, and history enthusiasts. I can’t wait to meet all the new people on the tours and learn new things.”

With just over a month left to go, the DVA urges anyone interested in a guided mural tour to book soon to secure a date.

To book a mural tour, call the DVA office at 250-542-5851 or email events@downtownvernon.com.

 

Tours are available at 9 a.m. or 10 a.m. Tuesdays and Fridays until Sept. 5.
