Wabash, Ind. –The Wabash Marketplace First Friday Committee is pleased to announce the partnership with the Wabash County Chamber of Commerce for the monthly First Friday events held by Wabash Marketplace, Inc. “First Fridays have grown tremendously these last few years, and we welcome the partnership and support that the Wabash County Chamber of Commerce will give,” said Tyler Karst, project coordinator for Wabash Marketplace. "The Chamber is excited to partner with Wabash Marketplace by supporting First Fridays. First Fridays has been a well-attended and well-managed program that has enriched our lifestyle and has created economic opportunities for our membership. We support the ongoing work of making our town the model for small town America and believe this partnership helps to achieve that objective," said Paul McCann, Board of Directors chair for the Chamber.
First Friday encourages the community to celebrate in downtown Wabash with monthly themes throughout the year. Come on down for this month’s theme “Flashback Friday” from 5-8 p.m. Friday, March 3rd.
You will find many deals, food options, and kids’ activities during this event. This month’s theme will focus on the past of downtown Wabash. Not only will many different businesses have deals, steals, and historical facts for you, but First Friday participants should pick up a guide and travel to each featured business to find a fact about the building or business that is currently there. These guides can be picked up at the Welcome Center, Modoc’s Market, and any featured business! Once you have filled out your guide, you can drop it off at any of the featured locations. You will then be entered to win the First Friday Basket loaded with so many local goodies! March’s featured businesses include: Babka’s Polish Pottery, The Curb, the Eclectic Shoppe, Twisted Scissors, Wabash County Historical Museum, and Wabash Pizza King.
Come on downtown and have some fun. We are looking forward to seeing you.
The First Friday committee of Wabash Marketplace is a volunteer group of individuals who are passionate about the downtown and creating a one-of-a-kind hometown atmosphere. For more information regarding the events or how you can become involved please contact Tyler Karst by calling 260-563-0975
