Two new events this year will showcase more of what Marinette has to offer. Marketing and Tourism Director Melissa Ebsch presented a plan to the Civic Affairs Committee Monday to host a block party on Main Street August 17th. The event will run from 3:00 PM until 10:00 PM and feature acoustic music and main stage entertainment, activities for children and adults, and numerous street vendors. Ebsch says the block party will help promote the city’s downtown district as part of an ongoing effort to revitalize the area.
Ebsch is also planning a Family Fun Camp Out at Red Arrow Park for September 14th. Families are invited to spend the night at Red Arrow Park and enjoy food, games, pavilion entertainment, a tent decorating contest and more.
The Civic Affairs Committee unanimously approved both requests to close Main Street from Hall Avenue to Wells Street for the August block party and for the overnight use of Red Arrow Park for the Family Fun Camp Out.
