small-world-passportAnd during the whole week, Downtown Sanford..Small World Passport: We have such a great little downtown here in Sanford, yet we still cannot compete with the chain restaurants and bars at the “Towne Centers”. Sanford-Small World has a mission to get you to view our downtown as a destination when you are going out for an evening. By combining the elements of a pub crawl, a scavenger hunt, and an Epcot drink-around-the-world we hope to get you to visit places you might otherwise never consider. As you criss-cross our beautiful little town (Complimentary Balinese PediCab rides to passport holders!), each location will stamp your passport when you complete their featured item. Get your passport fully stamped in a 2 week span and you win your very own “Sanford-Small World” T-Shirt.

POLAND-The Smiling Bison-Sanford

BELGIUM-Buster’s Bistro
