TODAY IS THE DAY! REV Birmingham is celebrating 10 years of creating vibrant commercial districts in the City of Birmingham. Today is all about celebrating the past decade of success and all that we have accomplished. It all started ten years ago when two organizations – Operation New Birmingham and Main Street Birmingham – merged to create the one and only REV Birmingham. We have covered so much ground since then, from historic building rehab consulting all the way to our refresh of 20th Street North – and we are looking forward to seeing what the future holds for us here at REV.
REV is turning TEN! Our birthday is swiftly approaching (it’s on November 15th in case you want to give us a happy birthday shoutout!) and we are spending the week leading up to it reflecting on the past 10 years. We have accomplished so much in just a decade, and we can’t wait to see what the next 10 years have in store for us. But for now, let’s take a trip down memory lane and look back at some of our favorite projects.
At REV Birmingham, we love the fact that downtown is the best place for large community-wide celebrations. One of the most vibrant places to celebrate Veterans Day is the city center of Birmingham! Visitors from all areas and backgrounds mingle with Birmingham’s downtown workforce and neighbors at the greatest Veterans Day parade to honor those who have served. Which the 75th annual Veterans Day coming up, here’s what you need to know about all the festivities!
