According to D.I.D. president, Mike Galbraith, the success of Shop Small Saturdays often determines the future of indie businesses in and around the Fort Wayne area.

Fort Wayne's Downtown Improvement District has found a creative way to keep the community safe while preserving its yearly holiday shopping tradition.

The reinvented celebration, called The Days of Holly Shopping," takes place every Saturday until Christmas.

To see what 2020's festivities will look like, WBOI's Julia Meek contacted D.I.D. president, Mike Galbraith, by Zoom to discuss the importance of this event, and just what's in store this year for shoppers and shop owners alike.

  Event Information:

The Days of Holly Shopping, Downtown Fort Wayne
Saturdays, December 12th & December 19th, 2020
