Where dressing up is ENCOURAGED!
Together we can make downtown Marion “the vibrant heart of our community”. To fulfill this mission DMI has partnered with both public and private organization. Outside of private partnership DMI has partnered with organizations such as The First Church of the Nazarene, The Marion Community foundation, and The Marion Convention Visitors Bureau. In collaboration with these organizations we have been able to update and purchase Christmas decorations, provide new flags to adorn the downtown, assist in demolition of the burned buildings on S. Main, and create new programs such as Paint the Town and the Cultural Corridor. We are excited about continuing our work of beautification, expansion, and support of business in our downtown. Thank you for supporting this event and any other DMI sponsored event.Miles for Marion 5K Run/Walk.
