DMSSD Year in Review 2017

The Downtown District is proud to present a new video that spotlights some of the many things folks can do in Downtown Manchester. The video was produced by the talented staff of Quast Media and is a part of a special promotion organized by the Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce. 366 spots will air on 18 Channels on Comcast over a 4 week period beginning in June. We encourage viewers to share the video and help spread the message: “Who would have thought I could do all of this in Downtown Manchester!”
