If you count yourself among those who are completely, totally, unequivocally ready to dump the winter season and bring on the spring, it's time to "call your mother, call your sister, call your girlfriends" and get ready to party in St. Joe with St. Joseph Today's Diva Days celebration coming March 11th through the 13th.
Whitney Behnke is Executive Director of St. Joseph Today and she says, "Our downtown is welcoming spring by helping women of all ages embrace their inner Diva!"
Diva Days — A Women's Weekend is a collaborative weekend-long celebration hosted by the community's restaurants, stores and hotels. The weekend gives ladies literally dozens of reasons to come together for pampering, shopping and entertainment.
Behnke says, "While it's fun to plan for a girl's night out, it's really a great excuse for 'the girls' to stay the weekend with each other." She adds that many of the community's lodgings are within walking distance or a short, easy drive of the activities. Reservation information is available at www.StJoeToday.com/Sleep.
Whitney tells us that the first 150 women to purchase their ticket for the Friday night event will earn a dynamite Diva Swag Bag filled with special discounts and offers at participating locations. She says, "This year we have so many great offerings for our divas. We have two main events planned, a fashion show on Friday night and unique entertainment experience on Saturday." She calls it, "A weekend ladies will not want to miss." Ticket prices for the events are $36 for the Spring Fashion Show and Exclusive Shopping and $40 for InnDulgence. Tickets can be purchased online at the link below, and table reservations are also available.
