From the Business Improvement Area (BIA) Blog:

Question, how many Tacomans does it take to change hundreds of light bulbs? Just one, but it would take years! Every holiday season Tacoma is lit up with lights and shooting stars but over the years and the rain, the lights are shining  less and less. Which is why the Downtown Merchants Group, Spaceworks and the BIA are asking for your help to brighten the holidays with a Bulb Party!

On November 10th, the Downtown Merchants Group, BIA and Spaceworks will have all of the supplies necessary for a fantastic bulb party including refreshments and goodies, all we are missing is you! Many hands will turn this dark and dull task into a light and merry one, so come join us, and bring your friends!

The Bulb Party will be hosted November 10th and there are three times to choose from! We will be hosting shifts from 7:00-9:00 am, 11:00-1:00 pm, and 5:00-8:00 pm.  The Bulb Party will be at the downtown Post Office Building on the main floor.
