Hello All!

What perfect weather for the Ice festival!  I was glad to see you there!  Our specialty shops were bustling with activity and the chili was phenomenal!  Congratulations to Wounded Minnow for winning!  And, did you hear, The Baker’s Rhapsody served 500 samples in just three hours!  

We have received the analytics for our website.  There is lots of information and we are all digesting it.  But I will tell you this - most of our visitors click through from Facebook!  When we mention a festival, or a specific activity in a festival on Facebook, people are heading right to our website to get more information!  You may want to check yours - see if you are getting more hits just prior to a festival.  This is a nice way to track - and any updates can be added prior to a festival so it gets the most views. We love that our members are getting the exposure!   More to come! 

This year we are combining our member guide with our festival brochure.  It will be a nice, sleek, easy to read brochure.  Please get your ads ready! 

Congratulations to Jadelyn Zimmerman - crowned Miss Dowagiac 2018!
