Marquette, MI – April 29th, 2016 – Mona Lang, Executive Director of the Downtown Development Authority, joined Todd Paz on the 8th Day to discuss the upcoming improvements to the downtown area and the Cinco de Mayo fundraiser for the 4th of July fireworks.

Todd and Mona first discussed the planned improvements to the downtown area of Marquette. She talked about how the brick-paved sidewalks are going to removed and replaced by colored concrete. The brick paved sidewalks weren’t able to stand up to our climate, however the new concrete will be able to withstand our winters much better. Also, there are planned improvements to the trees that line the downtown streets. There are several dead or missing trees, and Mona talked about how the Downtown Development Authority is going to make downtown even more beautiful!

Every summer, Marquette hosts the city’s fireworks at Mattson Lower Harbor Park, however, in recent years, funding for the event has seen a decline. As a way to raise funds for the event, the DDA is hosting a Cinco de Mayo party at Vango’s in Marquette on Thursday, May 5th. The fundraiser will feature several authentic Mexican food dishes, and there will be bucket drawings and even a 50/50 drawing!
