Downtown Springfield Inc. Hosts Annual Awards Dinner
Celebrating the heart of the capital city. That's what Downtown Springfield Inc. did when they hosted their annual awards dinner Wednesday night.
Every year, local businesses and organizations are honored for their work in bringing development to Springfield.
Over the years, the downtown landscape has changed, and DSI leaders say it's because of individuals working together.
"There really is some people behind the scenes that do some amazing things with amazing buildings, with amazing projects, organizations and they just need to be honored," said Executive Director Victoria Ringer.
Among the awards Wednesday night, the Springfield Art Association won the "Best New Event" for its "Paint The Street Festival."
All proceeds from Wednesday night support the continued mission to revitalize downtown Springfield.
