Downtown Worker Appreciation Day a Success!

If you were out strolling around downtown on the morning of Thursday, April 26th, you may have seen a wonderful sight: a tent, smiling volunteers stationed under it, and loads of free coffee, food, and gift bags. This was not a mirage, it was Downtown Worker Appreciation Day!

Once again, Portland’s Downtown District teamed up with Portland Buy Local for this celebration, which has been awarded Outstanding Special or Retail Event by the Maine Downtown Center. The goal of the event is to thank people for working in downtown Portland.

During the roughly three-hour event, volunteers at three stations gave out 600 gift bags along with hundreds of samples of free food. Some lucky visitors were even treated to a chair massage. Visitors to the tents represented over 160 businesses!
