HolidayFest on the River
The Greater Valley Area Chamber of Commerce in partnership with the City of West Point, is bringing back what has been known as Winter Festival. The event has been revamped with a new name and new ideas.
 
This event will be the Chamber of Commerce’s second event of this kind in the community for the Greater Valley Area. We are finding out more and more that what the community wants is something to look forward to each year that is family friendly and entertainment for the whole family.

We plan to have activities for the children, as well as, food vendors, arts and craft vendors for shopping and entertainment throughout the day.
 
Some of the activities we plan to include are:

·       Inflatables      
·       Rock Climbing
·       Face Painting
·       Cyber Game Truck
·       Laser Tag
·       Food Vendors
·       Arts & Craft Vendors
·       and More!

Admission to the event will be FREE to the public. For the Chamber to offer this event at no charge to the community we need sponsors like you to help make this event possible. We anticipate a large turnout and would like for you to be a part of this wonderful community event.
