Award - $1750

Proposals being accepted for an event/exhibit/performance to take place in downtown Turners Falls on Thursday, May 16, 2013 during the downtown Thursday night out to cap off the 2 week long Crabapple Blossom Festival.

Do you have an interesting project you would like to get exposure, funding and collaborators for?  Consider tying it in to our downtown event with the theme of Blossom.  As an example, our April night out theme is “Where I Live” and will feature and exhibit of 4x6” cards created by residents, visitors and anyone interested in that theme.  Area businesses will be open late and tie in to the theme.
