The City’s Parks, Recreation and Cultural Affairs staff has secured event management platform, Booth Central, to reinvent the Downtown Festival & Art Show as a virtual event this fall where participants will be able to visit artists, view art work and purchase pieces, while local musicians and dance groups perform virtually as community groups, festival sponsors and young artists also engage in virtual chat rooms with online attendees.
