Mice on Main Street
Februar 9, 2009
Nine hidden little bronze mice are a special attraction for children and a sort of scavenger hunt on downtown Greenville’s main street. Children of all ages are invited to search for these mice, which are hidden on both sides along a nine-block stretch of Main Street between the Hyatt & the Westin Poinsett hotels. Mother Maggie, father Marvin, Marvin Jr., Marcley, Millie, Mitch, Melissa, Millfin and Miles are all placed on or above ground level. To find the mice you can get the ‚Mice of Main‘ book or a list of clues. The adorable list with cute little mouse illustrations will be the mark of a ‚mission accomplished‘ for younger kids. This wonderful idea was a school project of a local high school student, Jim Ryan, and is based on the popular children’s book ‚Goodnight Moon‘.
A bronze version of this favorite book, and the first mouse, Mr. Mickey, are mounted on the fountain in front of the Hyatt Regency hotel.
