Holidays in Media
Media has a great tradition of holiday events and a beautiful streetscape for shoppers and diners to enjoy.  As we continue the 2010 season, here's a quick preview of remaining events (and the latest calendar is available online here):
    • 15-Dec: Carriage Rides 6-9pm
    • 16-Dec: Visit Santa in Media @ Santa's Village
      (daily through 23-Dec)
    • 22-Dec: Carriage Rides 6-9pm
    • 31-Dec: New Years Eve Celebration & Ball Drop
We hope everyone will stay open late on the Carriage Ride nights if they can.  We'll be making the Carriage Rides a little more special this year with an extended route that takes riders from Monroe to Orange Streets, scripts the drivers will read highlighting Media landmarks, and participation by Front Street businesses like the Library.  We'll also be giving all riders a special Media bag... if you have anything you'd like to contribute to the bags (advertisements, coupons, small gifts, candy, etc), please let us know by midday this Wednesday.  This is a great way to reach potential customers directly.
Fig Comes to Media
We are excited to announce that Fig is coming to Media in 2011. Produced by Moxie House, a marketing and design firm, Fig is an economic development tool that will help us position our growing community as an exciting place to live, work and play. Through print, web and social media, Fig will help our visitors and our residents see what makes Media so great. The Media Business Authority has met with representatives from Fig and the MBA is excited about this new communications package. Please join us in welcoming Fig...
