Great turnout for Becker Expo!

The Becker Chamber of Commerce held their annual Becker Business Expo last Saturday to a worthy crowd. Over 100 vendors were reportedly on hand for the four hour event held at the Fieldhouse at Becker Schools.

LPI had rented space right inside the main doors where they gave away free paper bags for guests to carry their purchases and giveaways in. There were tables upon tables of crafter’s handiwork and plenty of businesses ready to answer questions or participate in giveaways. Also at the event were the Big Lake Ambassadors doing face painting art on the cheeks and foreheads of Becker’s youth.

Starz Dancers Studio performed at the rear of the building as well as Becker Robotics and Belly Dancers from Dance Caravan of Otsego. Refreshments were served in the foyer which included sodas, water, candy bars and light fare.

At the Becker Chamber of Commerce table, gift baskets were on display for guests to choose from after their bingo cards were filled up.  Madilyn S.was the winner of the Becker Area Senior Center (BASC) basket; Mark S. won the Felton Home Team basket;  Kari B. took home the Hubbard Electric basket; Nevi B. captured the Patriot News basket; Sienna S.won the Grand Stay Hotel basket;  Jessica K. took home the Options Inc.  basket.  

Some of the local businesses and crafters featured jewelry, home goods, body care, spices, clothing, canned goods, candy, decor, books, kid games, skin care, makeup, ear piercing, cornhole boards, cribbage boards, kitchen gadgets and much more!
