The last Saturday of the month from May to September, Grandview hosts a community gallery hop on Grandview Avenue between 1st Avenue & 5th Avenue called The Grandview Hop. It has rained the past three months during The Grandview Hop! I have been trying to blog about it the past three months, but it is hard to get good pictures of it when it’s raining & the turnout is not as great when the weather is crappy. I went this past Saturday – hoping it wouldn’t rain since the sky looked pretty nice – and it did (not as bad as June & July, but still). I have been attending The Grandview Hop for a long time, as a past Grandview resident. My friends & I would go on a regular basis because it was something to do on a small town weekend night. It has definitely grown over the past couple years. This past summer was probably the biggest I had seen it, with more vendors & mobile stores. The pictures are from the August & July Hops.
This past Saturday I went with my friend Anna, here’s a classic mirror selfie at Objects for the Home

Like in Westerville Fourth Fridays & Marysville Uptown Friday Nights, there is live music, local vendors, & food. The crowd is probably the smallest at The Grandview Hop since no streets actually close down for the event & the businesses in the area are really the major options for food instead of many trucks & stands like in Marysville & Westerville. I always enjoy my time at The Grandview Hop, though! Have you ever been?
