Festival Purchases New Main Street Building from Bengtson’s!!
On Friday, June 27, The Red Flannel Festival Board of Directors purchased 18 S. Main Street from Terry and Diane Bengtson. “Since 1969, the Bengtson’s have owned this building and a successful insurance business, and we are proud to continue their legacy of honesty and integrity,” said Michele Tracy-Andres, Festival President. She continued, “It meant a lot to us to receive such a warm welcome from our new neighbors!”
The Festival purchased their current location on E. Maple Street in 2006 and plan to continue to use for meetings. “The exciting proposed revitalization of that area (Cedar Springs Brewery, Library and Community Building) should make the current location attractive to potential buyers or renters,” said Andres.
“The Festival will enjoy the increased visibility of a Red Flannel souvenir store being located directly on Main Street,” said Andres.
