The summer edition of the Great Girlfriend Getaway in Hannibal is coming up August 7-9. This is COVID-modified version of the annual event but a big bonus is that many of the events are free.

One of the main attractions of the 2020 Great Girlfriend Getaway is free live music all weekend long. Music on Main: Stroll the Street features outdoor concerts throughout the day and into the night. Hannibal now has an open container ordinance which allows alcoholic beverages outside between North St. and Broadway and from the Mississippi River to Third St. No glass containers are allowed, but visitors are able to stroll and sip alcohol downtown.

Otherwise, the schedule for the Great Girlfriend Getaway is jammed packed. Click here for the full listing. It features coupons, classes, demonstrations, specials and more.  The event is hosted by the Historic Hannibal Marketing Council.
