EATON — Sunny summer-like weather made its first big appearance Saturday, April 23, just in time for Downtown Eaton Inc.’s first major event of the year, the Spring Craft Show.
“What a beautiful day to kick off the season with our Spring Craft Show,” DEI officials said in a recent Facebook post. “Thanks to everyone who participated, sponsored, and attended. We’re so appreciative of the community and glad for a successful first event of 2022!”
During a committee meeting on Monday, April 25, DEI Promotions Committee Chair Megan Lutz called the event “phenomenal.” Despite approximately 20 “no-shows,” over 60 registered vendors showed up to participate. DEI received lots of positive feedback from vendors and attendees alike.
“We had a really diverse group of vendors,” DEI Organization Committee Chair Megan Griffis said, “Many were from outside Eaton.”
