Forest City Maple Trail Event – Get Involved!
We invite you to participate in the Forest City Maple Trail event being planned for the Spring Break with a unique opportunity to showcase your business. The Kinsmen Club of London will be bringing their portable evaporator to Covent Garden Market from April 12-17, 2021 for demonstrations in a COVID friendly way.
During this week, there will be entertainment, pop up markets, and other attractions throughout the BIA to take advantage of families looking for adventures during their week off.
This is your change to showcase a maple inspired dish in your restaurant, a maple-based drink on your patio, a delicious maple desert or maple/Canadiana themed merchandise in your business. Downtown London will be promoting you through the development of a Maple Trail map. Your customers will be engaged to promote your offerings on social media with the chance to win prizes. There will also be a supportive marketing campaign to bring attention to the fact that this is a support local initiative.
Please call Lisa Thomas at 519-495-0491 for more information.
