The decorations have been packed up and stored, the chairs stacked and returned, the vendors are home and cozy, the merchants met new people and are happy, we paraded, we laughed, we drank, we were merry, and now.. we are planning the next Fang Around event! In the meantime, we wanted to take a moment to say our thank yous.
Thank you so much to everyone that came out to shop, show off costumes, see some hearses, support artists, and… Fang Around!
We had an amazing crew of volunteers to assist vendors with load-in and tear-down, keep the coffee going in the Parlour and check in with attendees. THANK YOU, volunteers! Thank you to the volunteers that helped on Friday to prep the courtyard and Gardens!
A shout out and thank you to the merchants of Royal Square District for opening your doors with friendly faces and participating in this unique inaugural holiday event.
