ChickFest returns with new twists, same community involvement

Small Business Word Cloud Concept With Shopping Cart

Charles City, Iowa – The biggest shopping day for area merchants is back and it’s this Saturday.

ChickFest has become one of the most popular spring traditions offering deals, discounts, demonstrations and free gifts showcasing Charles City’s unique retail offerings.

New this year is the chance to score a free gift or discount by finding a golden ticket in one of the 150 gift bags.  You can also get a horse-drawn carriage ride from Central Park for a free will donation supporting a new non-profit called Magdalene’s Light.

The organization is a residential and vocation program for abused and trafficked women.

Farmer’s market vendors and in-home businesses will also be set up around town.
