FUN, FESTIVAL ATMOSPHERE
Proud of your decisions to buy local? Commemorate it with a special caricature of yourself drawn by a local artist Vickie Richardson with 'buy local' messaging on the bottom. NO CHARGE! Here's an example:
GIANT CONNECT 4
Celebrate the connections we share with local businesses, but mostly just have a crazy time playing "Giant Connect 4."
WIN GREAT PRIZES
We have all become more aware of the reasons to buy local – and they apply just as much to our business purchases as our personal ones. This event will give attendees the chance to ‘walk the talk’ and find quality, local vendors for their business purchases.
After all, a market shift of just 10% to local independent businesses would retain an additional $416 million in our regional economy, which helps all of our businesses!
