Downtown Bay City has put together another one-of-kind event! Fall Downtown Divas during September 21, 22 & 23, 2007.
A special fall weekend for and about women, designed to bring out the inner Diva in all of us! This event provides the perfect getaway for a few hours, a day or the entire weekend. A variety of events are scheduled along with our favorite activity ? Shopping!
According to Candace Bales, Executive Director of the Bay City Downtown Management Board, while Bay City is a favorite shopping and dining destination, the Fall Downtown Divas Weekend provides an easy, exciting and fun opportunity for women to getaway, relax and enjoy spending time with one another.
Bales said, "It's also a great way for us to introduce women to the wonderful variety of businesses in our historic Downtown shopping district while also showcasing all that our special community has to offer."

It's all about pampering. Activities designed to make a Diva feel good are being offered throughout Downtown. Enjoy special goodies all over town such as a free mini eye make-up lesson at Merle Norman and a massage at Migun Body Sense at a special Diva price.
