Art Walk bringing in the business again in 2017.
Nicola Valley Arts Council President Chelsea Werrun says the event that pairs artists and businesses was again a success.
All 21 businesses involved saw increased traffic, averaging 100 additional customers as a direct result of the event.
"A lot of people seemed to really enjoy the work this year. We had mosaic art, infused glass, paintings, drawings, sculpters, and photography. So, it was a nice blend this year."
The Art Walk is run in partnership by the Merritt and District Chamber of Commerce and Nicola Valley Arts Council.
Werrun says the plan is to return next year, for a sixth straight summer.
