Special Events Manager

“It is so rewarding and awesome to have a career in special event production where our literal job is to make memories for those attending while also supporting the arts, businesses, and more who participate.” Cara’s says her favorite event is the Christmas Parade because she adores a good parade and cherishes the moments families create together. A close second on her list is the Tacos and Tequila event, where creativity meets great cuisine, fun décor, and music that keeps the vibe alive.
