Special Event

Is Your Downtown Open After 6pm?

Roger teaches five different strategies you can use to help "Ma and Pa" businesses stay open longer, increase their sales, and make your community a much stronger visitor destination.

Seventy percent of all consumer retail spending now takes place after 6:00 pm. Are you open? One of the primary reasons downtowns are dying is because most downtown retailers close between 5:00 and 6:00 pm, sending local residents - and visitors - to other destinations. This creates tremendous "leakage" of locally earned dollars being spent elsewhere. How do you change this?

This video will teach you five different strategies you can use to help "Ma and Pa" businesses stay open longer, increase their sales, and make your community a much stronger visitor destination. After all, visitors spend the night where there are things to do after 6:00 pm.

Trick or Treat Street

Members & Friends,

The Downtown Bremerton Association (DBA) hosts our 19th annual Safe Trick or Treat event in Downtown Bremerton on Halloween.

This community event takes place on the streets of our downtown core, with many businesses and residents offering a safe place for kids and families to participate in trick or treating in a safe environment. This event draws well over 1,000 children and their families to downtown and continues to grow.

The DBA gets the necessary permitting to block Pacific Avenue and 4th Street from car traffic, and provides a horse-drawn hay ride, a haunted house, and promotes the event to the families in and around our community.

We can’t do it without your help. The DBA is seeking donations to help meet our fundraising goals of growing this event. Please help us provide this fun and safe event for the local children.

Participating DBA Members complete the registration form and turn it in with a $20 donation or large bag (~100 pcs) of candy by October 16th to the DBA collection site at Flowers D'Amour.

We will be visiting non-members this Wednesday to ask them to join and participate in Trick or Treat Street.

All donations are tax deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law. Most important, the proceeds will be used towards achieving our goal of a safe and successful event.

On behalf of the Board, I would like to extend our gratitude for your support of this event.

Sincerely,

Michael Goodnow, President
Downtown Bremerton Association
