CANTON – April 20, 2016 — As organizers plan for the second Collinsville HOT event on July 16, the idea is to incorporate many of the elements from last year while tweaking a few details, the Canton Compass reported.

Bob Bessel, a board member for Canton Main Street, the umbrella organization for the event, estimates that some 4,000 people enjoyed last year’s festivities. “We started this thing with high hopes and it exceeded all of them last year,” Bessel said. “We’re really excited about doing even better this year.”

Many of the major aspect of the event, such as fire dancers, a chalk walk, live music and an artisan fair are set to remain. Read more at the Canton Compass.

    Good Evening, I was just checking out your website. I am inquiring about sponsorship opportunities for your Collinsville Hot event July 16th.I clicked the link on your website and for whatever reason I couldn’t get it to work. I grew up in Canton, CT and most of my family still resides in Canton. My brother-in-law brought your event to my attention. Him and my sister attended the event last year and had a blast. If you could email me a breakdown of your sponsorship tiers and what they intel that would e wonderful! thank you!
