    Memories are routinely rekindled into parties. Birthdays, anniversaries, and like celebrations mark the things we treasure most. Gather friends and family within a familiar reunion backdrop, provide a tantalizing buffet, add some sparkle, and give everyone the right amount of space to relax, mingle, stroll . . . and remember. That’s a party that works every time.

    On the surface, Crawfordsville’s Downtown Party Night might appear to be just another after-Thanksgiving retail melee, clanging for attention among the frenzy of ads and promotions. Main Street would like to offer that this Saturday’s holiday hometown event is in fact a retreat from all that. The emphasis is in fact a continuation of the spirit of gratitude. In this case, thankfulness for the many benefits our community has to offer, in particular our downtown’s family owned, small local businesses.
