Hundreds of Quad Citizens attended Icestravaganza over the weekend, experiencing first handwhy this Downtown Davenport signature event is one of "America's Best Winter Festivals to Blast Away the Winter Blahs." Icestravaganza received that awesome designation from WickedGoodTravelTips.com. The Downtown Davenport Partnership (DDP) initiated the event four years ago as a free amenity for families to break the winter monotony in an enjoyable, unique and fun way downtown. A strong commitment to the overall development and livability of our region is deeply rooted in the Chamber's mission and its partnerships. Working closely and in concert with DDP and other area downtowns to improve our regional downtown livability and enjoyability is just one example of our fulfillment of that mission.
We are already convinced and sure the Quad Cities is a great place to live, work, play and do business, so it gives us great pride and satisfaction when others also recognize all we have to offer as a region. In the last few months, several of our Quad Cities communities have been recognized and ranked favorably by a variety of sources. So pat yourselves on the back Quad Cities, your great qualities as a community are not going unnoticed.
