The locally owned businesses in the Catlin Court and Old Towne shopping districts have created this fun-filled day to celebrate the treasured love between women and have planned a perfect day for you and your best friends. There will be fun things to do along the way including make and take activities, fun photo ops, lovely gift ideas at the locally-owned unique boutiques and specialty shops and sweet treats to satisfy your sweet tooth at the iconic eateries.

The Old Towne District is home to one-of-a-kind shops and a growing Restaurant Row all nestled along red brick sidewalks. The two districts span 12 blocks filled with locally owned small businesses ready for you to experience.
