SEPTEMBER 4, 2013
Get involved ... and reap the benefits
The merchants and businesses in Cave Creek, and members of the Cave Creek Merchants & Events Association (CCMEA) have two phenomenal oppor-tunities coming up: Cave Creek Wicked (October 26), Arizona’s only all day, all night Halloween event and Wild West Days (November 1-3), Arizona’s largest western event. What is the opportunity? To get involved, participate and benefit.
During Cave Creek Wicked, the western end of town comes alive with fun for kids and families from 11 a.m. – 4 p.m. Ideally, all of the storefronts on the west end of town will offer candy to the kids during as part of the community-wide trick or treating fun. In addition, please plan something fun at your place of business if you have not already signed up. You could give away bottled water, bat rings or other fun items the children will cherish. Or, you could host a witch’s brew in front of your business, a psychic or sell masks or baked goods. During the evening from 6 p.m. – 2 a.m., the costume contest pub crawl will roll through town offering our guests a great time at several restaurants and bar establishments as they vie for prizes and become acquainted with the unique establishments throughout our special town. Make it a fun day and evening for your patrons.
Wild West Days offers all of the businesses in town a unique opportunity for exposure and for business sales. Every business in town should have a Wild West Days sign or banner and plan something western and fun in front of and within their business environment. Sales were through the roof for numerous businesses last year and this year will be even better. Our sponsors urge every business in town to be involved. With three days of fun planned (four with the golf tournament on October 31), it means triple the opportunity to win in a major way.
We all want our residents and visitors to feel welcome during our signature community events. Be a part of these events and drive traffic into your establishment. So, get on board now and let the CCMEA know your plans for these two fantastic events. Call 602-400-3330 and share your plans.
Thank you for making Cave Creek a proud and great place to live and work.
