Germantown Small Businesses will be hosting their 2nd Annual Downtown Derby Dash on May 5th, 6th, and 7th.
Participants can pick up a ticket at any of the participating businesses and then “dash” from business to business, get their race ticket stamped, shop & dine with local merchants who feature door prizes and discounts, turn in their race ticket at the last business visited to be entered to win a grand prize - an iPad Mini or a $100 gift certificate fundable to any participating Germantown business in the Downtown Derby Dash.
