“Last year was our first ‘Unicorns and Rainbows Sticker Scavenger Hunt,’ and people loved it,” DCA Director Carrie Schulstad stated in a news release about the June First Friday event. “It’s a great way to explore our downtown shops and have fun with your family and friends. We’re so very happy to also get to celebrate with Naturally Healthy Pet and cheer them in their new location. We encourage everyone to dress up in the theme and come on down and support our downtown small businesses.”
