The Chicopee Downtown Get Down is an annual block party showcasing local businesses and organizations and featuring live entertainment and delicious eats. This was our third year taking part in the festivities, and it's an event we look forward to all year long!
In order to promote our Farm to School programs, we served local yogurt parfaits featuring local fruit, local yogurt, and even local granola! A big thanks to Local Maple Granola in Holyoke, MA for donating a delicious lemon granola that was a smash hit with parfait customers. We also gave students the opportunity to take a spin on our Blender Bike and mix up their own healthy fruit smoothies. Even May Kos gave it a go!
Thanks to everyone who came out to enjoy the Get Down and support Chicopee businesses and organizations. We hope to see you next year! Comment below with ideas for what we should serve at the Get Down next year :)
