Bring the whole family out for a night of music, vendors and family fun, and help raise funds to support the continued recovery after a fire that devastated downtown Fowler last December.
On Friday September 6th, Parents Playing Music, a local band made up of Jared, Joyce, Domik, Taylor and Mitchell Feldpausch, along with Matt Schrauben, will perform live at the Trailhead Welcome Center Depot. Joining them will be special musical guest Alex Pung. The fun begins at 7pm.

Organizers say complicated obstacles have left gaps in coverage funds and have driven up recovery costs of the fire-affected downtown area.
The event is free but donations will be accepted. There will also be a variety of food vendors on site, games like PLINKO and Corn Hole, and the night will feature giveaways and some special announcements as well.
All proceeds will go directly to the cause.
The Trailhead Welcome Center Depot was recently constructed in the space once occupied by the historic Fowler railroad depot. An image of the former depot adorns a mural on the north-facing side of the Becker Furniture building.
Today's depot welcomes guests of the rails-to-trails Fred Meijer Clinton-Ionia-Shiawassee Trail corridor to Fowler. The 41.3 mile trail connects the communities of Owosso, Ovid, St. Johns, Fowler, Pewamo and Muir/Lyons, from east to west.
The MDOT-owned trail is composed of crushed limestone along with 8 miles of asphalt in towns, and is maintained by the volunteer organization Friends of the Fred Meijer Clinton-Ionia-Shiawassee Trail.
