Halloween, a Community Holiday in Fruita

Despite some chill in the air, hundreds of youthful gools and goblins, super heroes and other favorite characters filled the streets of Fruita. The community, spurred pon by this Chamber event, came together to serve all. This event provided an opportunity for the community to find that there are businesses in Fruita to satisfy their needs. Hopefully, the event will underscore the slogan I used when editing, Shop, Play and Stay in Fruita.

With the new used book store replacing the golf equipment store, the new clothing store, now moving into the Go Figure space and the Hot Tomato, remodeling the old cleaners buildingehind their former location, just a hundred some feet north of their old location, main street, we know as East Aspen Avenue, is looking better. The vacant former home interior business and the old historic Pierce space remain to be filled with viable businesses. There is the old brew pub business which currently houses Dinosaurs and Doohickies, looking for a business or several to rent its vacant spaces. Fruita is alive and changing.

Community events like treet and Treat help underscore the Chamber's work in bringing business to Fruita.
