“Keeping with our new and improved theme... it’s under that umbrella,” said Temple. “We absolutely want to have it.”
The end goal is to try and bring back that sense that there will be something for everyone, from the art minded crowd to incorporating something like a car show. They are working on applying for entertainment grants and seeing if they can get acts that are recognized statewide and in the meantime there will also be a chance to create smaller events for the town to participate in.
Temple stated they will still need plenty of community support including volunteer hours when the event does take place. She reiterated her sentiment that if people have ideas they don’t have to be a business owner to share them and that she welcomes them to share them any time.
“They really love it and they don’t want to see it go away,” said Temple. “They have a great memory of BrickFest and we want to continue it.”
The next Main Street board meeting is Monday, April 14th at 5:30 at their office (corner of Paul and Walnut Streets) where BrickFest’s future and other topics will be discussed. Temple can be reached at the Main Street office by calling 405-238-2555 or through e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
