JOHNNY HARITOS AT FREEDOM ART AND MUSIC

LOCAL ART

Johnny Haritos is a Frenchtown based artist, best know for his drawings of rock stars that are signed by the rockers.  Johnny with an eye for light, color and shape also produces pleasing and interesting photographs.

THE SCARECROW WRANGLER

FRENCHTOWN SCARECROWS 2017

Envision-Plan-Implement

Frenchtown enjoyed two simultaneous events Labor Day Weekend that perfectly exemplified the envision-plan-implement process. A local art and performance venue, Art Yard, provided a street parade of colorfully dressed bird people, while the Frenchtown Business and Professional Association held its Riverfest event, celebrating the town, the arts and the river.  Both were a vision of the organizers who planned and implemented their events flawlessly and with joy exhibiting the perfect model for any business.   Think it, plan it, do […]

Riverfest Vikings

BRANDING

Branding an event is as important as branding your business.  What’s it all about?  How do you get people to attend?  By having fun.
