It's Victoria's first Small Business Saturday event in downtown Victoria and it's GOING TO BE HUGE!

Admission is free and there will be tons of things for you and your family to do too!

Small Business Saturday is the brainchild of Tina Goodner who took on the daunting task of organizing this massive event all on her own!

"I wanted to highlight and showcase the small businesses in our community so they knew they were seen and appreciated in the Crossroads."

It didn't take long for small businesses to line up for the chance to participate and we've featured several businesses for you so you can window shop before you go!

It's a sampling of the good things to come! 

Small Business Saturday is a one-day event scheduled for November 26th from 10 am to 8 pm at DeLeon Plaza which includes Forrest, Constitution, and Bridge Street.

Told you, it's going to be HUGE!
