Historic Downtown Glendale's Murphy Park and City Hall are being renovated. The construction process has brought the debut of Max and Mollie Murphy! This whimsical pair of construction vehicles will be all throughout the Downtown area on numerous adventures. You'll want to follow the Historic Downtown Glendale social media to keep up with their journey throughout the locally owned businesses. Every Monday, we will be dropping clues on our social media with fun hints on where this adorable pair is visiting. Follow the clues to the business you think they are located at for the month. Visit that business before the last day of the month, find Mollie who will be cleverly on display and enter to win for a chance to win $100!
Rules: No purchase necessary to win. Limit of one entry per household per month. Entries must be made in person at the participating shop. Must be 18 or older to enter. Odds of winning are determined by number of entries per month. Winner will be notified by phone or email. Other restrictions and rules may apply. Void where prohibited by law.

Historic Downtown Glendale's Entertainment District is actually two distinct neighborhoods!
Old Towne's brick-trimmed sidewalks and glowing gaslights lead the way to the famous eateries, antique shops and specialty stores.
Historic Catlin Court features a wonderful collection of unique boutiques and one-of-a-kind eateries. Located in mid-century bungalows, the area is surrounded by picket fences and mature shade trees.
The pedestrian friendly area spans 10 square blocks. Free covered parking is available at the Palmaire Parking Structure located at 5835 W. Palmaire Ave.
We are a must see when visiting the Phoenix area. We look forward to seeing you soon in Historic Downtown Glendale - A Real Hometown Happening!

Created by the Historic Downtown Glendale Merchants Association, the Peacock Passport is a fun and interactive guide through Historic Downtown Glendale and Historic Sahuaro Ranch as you search for metal designed peacocks and collect stamps at the listed businesses and attractions on the Passport. Participation is free and when you complete the passport, bring it back to the Arizona Information Center for a free gift! The passport also includes the history of peacocks in Glendale (it all began in 1933!)
How the Peacock Passport Works:
-Passports and more information at the Arizona Information Center (5836 W. Palmaire Ave.)
-There are eight unique stamps to collect. Collect a minimum of six to receive your gift.
Special thanks to local resident, Davita S., for bringing us this fun-filled idea.
