Summer Splash hits Willits on Wednesday

Willits Town Center plans to make a splash this summer, kicking off events Wednesday with the Willits Summer Splash.

The merchants and restaurants are teaming with the town and other sponsors to throw a party to celebrate the redesign of Triangle Park and the addition of a new stage and fountain. The fountain has already proved popular with kids.

The party at Willits Town Center’s signature park will be from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. It will feature music by Haden Gregg, Dana Underwood and Hap Harriman as well as Wanda and The Assets. There will also be kids’ activities. Aspen Olympic snowboarder Chris Klug will MC the event.

The Splash will also feature a drawing with numerous prizes from Willits businesses. The prizes include a townie bicycle, a stay-cation at the New Element Hotel, cookware, massages, spa treatment and dinner at Willits restaurants.

Also this week, the Basalt Business Center will celebrate its diversity with a party on Thursday. There will be food, music and music by Blu Plate Special. The party will be held at 155 Southside Drive from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. More than a dozen businesses are hosting.

The event is a “benefit networking event” for Basalt Chamber members and guests of the host businesses.
