Ladies Night Out deemed a success for local businesses

Columbia City Connect, an Indiana Main Street organization, held it’s sixth annual Ladies Night Out on Friday in downtown Columbia City. Scores of women (and a few guys too) strolled the streets, shopped the shops, popped inside popup shops and dined at local eateries, enjoying special deals and discounts along the way. Local business owners were excited with the turnout Friday evening, in spite of rain and cooler temperatures.

Columbia City Connect fosters community and economic development through projects that design, promote, organize, and fund the effort to energize downtown Columbia City. For more information about this non-profit organization and it’s ongoing activities, visit
