Spring Creative Crawl

Jennifer Jackson instructs a group about planting spring bulb gardens at Brady Street Florist in downtown DuBois.

The Spring Creative Crawl held Saturday in downtown DuBois was the most successful one yet, according to Mint Culinary Studio owner and co-organizer Joanne Bish.

Bish said this was the third event of the Creative Crawl Series, which was started in the summer of 2018. The goal of the Creative Crawl series is to provide an opportunity for local business owners to work together to offer a destination event featuring the rich creative artistry of the community while brining awareness to their business, she said.

The Spring Crawl includes six area businesses, where those attending participated in classes presented by Brady Street Florist, Marianne Fyda’s Studio, Mint Culinary Studio, re.invent.ed, and the Winery at Wilcox.

At each destination, industry professionals offered a hands-on, 45-minute class on topics ranging from an introduction to Chalk Paint to the art of pairing food and wine, Bish said.

At the conclusion of the Crawl, participants enjoyed lunch at Luigi’s Ristorante.

“Organizers were thrilled with the amount of interest from the community,” said Bish. “The Crawl had a total of 48 participants from across Clearfield, Jefferson, Indiana, and Elk counties.”

Tickets were available to the public for purchase online and were sold out within two weeks of being offered, according to Bish.

Based on the positive feedback from participants and business owners, plans have begun for a Summer Creative Crawl to be held on Saturday, July 20.
