HAVRE, Mont. (NMB) – After a year of cancellations and significantly altered events, The Havre Chamber of Commerce is preparing for a busy spring and summer season.
Executive Director Julea Robbins says it all gets started this Saturday afternoon with the Art Alley Spring Celebration, which was organized by the Hi-Line Arts Council and Downtown Havre Matters!
“We wanted to kind of do a big spring celebration to bring people out, get some fresh air and enjoy our brand new Art Alley. Bring some art through, along with some music.”
The Art Alley is located between 2nd and 3rd Streets and 3rd and 4th Avenues. The event is scheduled to take place from 3-8 PM.
Robbins says annual traditions that were altered or canceled last year such as the Saturday Market and Sounds on the Square will also take place.
“Sounds on the Square will start in June. That’ll be down in Town Square as normal. We’re getting bands lined up already. We’re hoping everybody comes back for that. Saturday Market will start in July on the 10th and we have seen some good sign-ups there. So everything is kind of going back to normal. Festival Days is kind of near the end of the summer, we’re hoping to bring that back this year with our parade and everything. We’re going to watch our numbers, make sure we’re still moving in a good direction. But we’re hoping to get back to at least a semi-normal year.”
