#WeBAM is a community event organized by Create Huntington (the folks behind Create VEGington, Create LOVEington, and Chat N Chew) as a way to celebrate the revealing of our rebranding as well as the results from our impact study and strategic planning project that has been underway since September 2016. Create Huntington has listened to what the community had to say and excited to put our plans into action! What better way than a two day party to showcase some of the best things our city has to offer!!

It's just We together can "BAM" - make something happen. BAM is as you know a comic book expression of action from way back - "BAM" "POW"

I'm sure it's much too late to become a vendor at this event, but how can I learn about future events earlier?
