Friends of Big Fun
There are a lot of really great businesses in the Exchange District and the surrounding area that we here at Big Fun think you guys should check out. Each of these places are either integral parts of the Exchange District, or have been integral parts of Big Fun. So over the next two weeks, we'll be highlighting some of these great businesses, and what they can do for you. Some of the Friends of Big Fun are also providing festival pass holders with a little something extra. While you're coming out to support local music, be sure to support local business!
