The Square
Nightfall comes earlier these days…stay shortly after the event to see the Square all lit up!

We wanted to take this opportunity to thank a few folks for their help in making tomorrow’s event happen. Of course the City has always been a good partner, and they’ve been very helpful this time around as expected. We also want to thank DECL for once again sponsoring us and lending their support! As you know we like to keep our venues tidy, so we have one again engaged Tri-Line Disposal to provide us with some equipment for that.

We also want to give a big shout out to a new partner – Northlands! They’ve stepped up to help us with line control and are providing stanchions for our use. Follow them on Twitter at @Northlands¬†and thank them when your line is clearly marked tomorrow!

Last but not least we want to give a plug to DJ’s Raebot and wijit who will be spinning tunes for us all evening long. We’re glad to have them on board!

If you’re at all interested in volunteering for the event – setup, cleanup – please let us know by sending Mack an email.

Churchill Square
Imagine this…but full of food trucks and people!

We hope to see you down on the square tomorrow!
