On Friday, May 20th, the City of Piqua shut down some of its downtown streets and opened them up to area restaurants for the 17th Annual Taste of the Arts. This event is sponsored by Mainstreet Piqua, a non-profit organization dedicated to the revitalization, promotion, and economic development of downtown Piqua. The Taste of the Arts featured 14 area restaurants and caterers. Tickets were purchased to taste various foods. Live music, artistic demonstrations, and children's activities were also available to enjoy.
MainSource Bank Piqua Branch volunteered by manning the souvenir booth. Those volunteers included Branch Manager Mike Mengos, Commercial Loan Officer David Wion, Branch Manager Frank Stewart, Sales Associate Sara McNaab, and Assistant Branch Manager Nancy Hayes.
