Our first time having a booth at the Popcorn Festival went great! We had a prize roundabout that was a huge hit for kids and adults where we had people spin the wheel and answer corresponding questions about Valparaiso or ValpoNEXT, and they got a piece of candy for answering! We also had a photobooth backdrop with many Valpo related props that was surprisingly most exciting for the kids that came by for the candy.
We got to speak to so many wonderful people about ValpoNEXT’s vision and what we all love and would want to change about Valpo. It was very exciting to get such great feedback from Valpo’s residents and business owners, and to really get our name out there in the community. We thank everyone that took time out of their day to stop by our booth and unknowingly become civically engaged for a few minutes!
