Main Street Marion celebrates Small Business Saturday with a week-long trivia contest

Main Street Marion, Indiana will sponsor and host a weeklong virtual trivia event to promote local businesses for Small Business Saturday. The event is being held in conjunction with the statewide Indiana Main Street Small Business Saturday virtual promotion.

Designed to promote and support the hardworking local businesses in our community, Main Street Marion’s Know Your Downtown Trivia event will run on the Main Street Marion, Indiana Facebook page from Monday, November 23 through Saturday, November 28, 2020. Participants will be able to compete virtually for $600 in total gift cards and donated prizes to support the downtown economy.

The MSM Promotion Committee, consisting of Chair Rachel Creech, Shayona Funches, Peter Troutner, Alexis Wroughton, Torri Williams, Kayla Johnson, and Jaylan Miller, partnered with the City of Marion and over 25 locally owned businesses to develop the trivia questions and social media contest plans. Main Street Marion has sponsored the gift card prize package from donated funds.
