    HydeParkbusinesses formalliancetodraw customers tohistoricdistrictWhenbicycle racers on

    theExergyTour pedaledthroughHydePark lastspring, people lined thesidewalks towatch.Seeing all those people in

    the two-block area of shops,restaurants andother businesses gave themerchants an idea: Find away todrawmorepeople toHydePark throughout theyear. SoBeckyWest, director of the non-profitDuniaMarketplace, formerly 10,000Villages, and someothers got together.The result is theHistoricHydeParkAl-

    liance, a group in its formative stage.HydePark had amerchants association, but it dis-banded in 2009.HydePark gets lots of visitors in the sum-

    mer and aroundChristmas, but it can beslowother times of the year,West says. For

    retail, everyone is just try-ing to stay afloat, she says.The alliance has created a

    logo, left, andput togetherevents forThursday,Dec.20, aimed at getting peopleinto the area.They include

    lanterndecorating at 6 p.m. at 13th StreetPub andGrill. Between 2 and 7p.m., peoplecan roastmarshmallows atDuniaMarket-places courtyard at 1609N. 13th St., anddecorate ornaments at the Stinker station.AfterChristmas,West says the alliance

    will go toworkdeveloping its ownWebpage andmakeplans for aValentinesDayevent. The alliance alsowants to becomeanonprofit so it can raise funds.Memberswill also talk about establishing dues formembers.
