First Fridays and Festivals

Many small towns across the Midwest are enjoying successful “First Fridays” monthly events. On the first Friday of each month local and regional visitors gather to explore a town for the first time or reminisce about growing up there. The event series brings regular foot traffic to merchants like downtown merchants and restaurants.  First Fridays are even more popular when they include a festival such as ice sculpture carving contests, cruise ins, car shows and cook-offs. First Fridays make a perfect “staycation.”

High dynamic range (HDR) photography and other modern photo styles are great for destination tourism marketing of small town / city events.
