Thanks to everyone who came out to our Greeley Unexpected campaign launch party at the first Friday Fest of the season! I can say we had a great time and loved seeing all of your smiling faces enjoying an evening out in Downtown Greeley. One of the neat things about social media is that you can not only share your own take on things that are going on, but you get to see those things through other people’s lenses as well. Take this video, for example, that Joe Brayan Films put this together. I think it really captures some of the Friday Fest magic.

After we saw part of this on Instagram we reached out to ask Joe Brayan to give him our kudos and to ask why he made the video. “I thought it would be a great opportunity to highlight an event that took place in Downtown Greeley from my perspective. I love making fun entertaining videos so I thought, why not?”

And Joe is not the only person that was out and about making video magic, we just saw another great video, this one posted by Jarrod Eddy, on Instagram.

It’s stuff like this that makes us proud (and makes it so easy) to promote the amazing things going on in our city. There is an immense amount of creativity constantly on display. If you see something fun, post it with the #GreeleyUnexpected hashtag on your social media of choice, and share it with the world.

Keep scrolling to see some of the photos we took along with a few other social posts that caught our eye from Friday Fest. If you missed out, don’t worry, Downtown Greeley has an entire summer full of Friday night fun lined up for you!
