Celebrate Two Rivers Event

The City of Two Rivers hosted a catalyst event in August 2020 to celebrate community and the long-awaited launch of a Two Rivers branding development process. Many people, including stakeholders, volunteers, businesses owners, leaders and city staff contributed to the brand development and to Celebrate Two Rivers!

The Celebrate Two Rivers event was held at Walsh Field which is a very picturesque location. It is as if the event committee knew – that if the event was held there, people would come! It is a multi-purpose field but has viewing stands from yesteryear. They are built into a hill for an extraordinary visual impact not found any more at little league or school fields.

The event had planned entertainment and a truck platform was donated to serve as the concert stage for the evening. Nettle Hill was the night’s entertainment – a regional and local cover band favorite. Rotary was selling drinks to raise money and there were foods trucks to provide a variety of food options: pizza, popcorn, roasted corn, cookie dough, barbeque, shaved ice. All local and regional favorites – that sold out by night’s end.

During the music intermission, the City of Two Rivers City Manager, Greg Buckley and City Council President Curt Andrews and explained the Branding Process introduced the City’s Journey to Creating True to Two and showed the video which outlines the story of Two Rivers.

At the end of the video – True to Two logo-wear was “revealed” and made available for the public to see for the first time. Volunteers had prepared a large booth, hidden to be displayed at just the right moment.

At the end of the night, True to Two bracelets and small gift giveaways were handed to attendees as gifts for coming to the first annual Celebrate Two Rivers.
