Take your children. Take your family. Take your friends from out of town. It's "Freedom!" It's "Sparkle!" It's "Adventure!" It's a mix of Greenville and art!
On a mouse hunt with her family, a tiny Santa's helper wearing her mouse shirt finds Marcley. Check the hints. You'll find Marcley, too.
Greenville's bronze mice are spaced here and there, on one side of Main Street or the other, all the way from the Hyatt to the Westin Poinsett Hotel.
Searching for them is a great way to get your exercise, learn about Greenville, see the art, even listen to music if you're downtown at the right time.
To find the mice, you'll need the Mice on Main book or a set of clues--or both, if you plan to find them all. Here are some hints we created just for you.
1. Begin your search on North Main where the water flowing in and out of the hotel makes a fountain on the outside. You'll find the father mouse, Marvin, reading his book. He can't hide--take a good look! 2. Mother Maggie is just across, sitting where she can see Marvin. When she looks down the street, she can see their five baby mice, placed here and there, all so sweet. 3. Cross the street and walk a bit. You'll see Marvin, Jr. at the top of the stairs where coffee lovers and computer gurus meet and poets love to count their feet. 4. Marcley's somewhere near the plaza square. Look around. You'll find him there. 5. Millie's a high "high-tech" girl. You'll really have to search, but give it a whirl. 6. Watch out! Mitch does his skateboarding in the bank's alley. You'll be lucky to find him; don't dally. 7. Across the street there's healthy stuff along the way. That's where Melissa loves to play. 8. You'll find Aunt Mifflin where there's old money. She's looking at the flowers, honey. 9. Mifflin's husband, Uncle Miles, loves to eat Italian. He's by the rain spout. If you've found him, give a shout!
That's what a mouse hunt is all about!
All nine mice line up on the back of the t-shirt. That's one way to find them. The other is to search for the bronze ones on Main Street.
