It was a magical weekend in #DowntownSTC
A big shout out to our Business Members, Community Partners, Committees, and Volunteers for making the first-ever FAM JAM possible!!!!!
Thank you to Community Care of St. Catharines and Thorold for joining us all weekend and providing candy bags for our Friday Night Movie and Landmark Cinemas 10 Pen Centre St. Catharines for providing popcorn. We’d also like to shout out Market St Catharines and Inksplosion Tattoos for passing out Goody Bags on the east end of St. Paul!
Thank you to the James Street Market for 2 awesome days of vendors and our special interactive booths with Snure Stories, Carousel Players Costume Photobooth, Niagara Region Public Health, Rachelle Gibbs Yoga, Niagara Folk Arts, the amazing Niagara Youth Orchestra Instrument Petting Zoo, and The Kesh Group cooling station.
We couldn’t imagine FAM JAM without the inflatable fun, story times, workshops, face painting, absolutely mesmerizing dance performances by Habeeba’s Dance Studio, Broadway Lights Dance Studio + Dancesations, special appearances from some of our favourite characters, and the first of MANY free concerts and outdoor movies at the FirstOntario Performing Arts Centre.
A special thank you to Joe Gottli Illustration’s Scavenger Hunt created with support from Ruby Red Beautiful, Cozy Bones, LittleChief.dog and the SCDA along with several participating businesses to help show-off how awesome our Downtown is!
Mostly …. thank YOU for coming out, supporting small businesses, and spending your weekend with us in the heart of the city.
