“Love Fort Wayne City Tour”



a Leadership Fort Wayne (Class of 2013) project




What is Love, Fort Wayne?

Love, Fort Wayne is a grass roots effort to highlight all the great businesses that make up the fabric of downtown. It’s a way to showcase and celebrate the businesses that make the downtown area thrive in a fun way – by inviting people to come down and check it out. It’s a way for businesses to stand out and be noticed and a way for citizens to show their pride.
It’s a way for the people of Fort Wayne to fall in love with their downtown – whether for the first time or all over again.

How do I play?

FREE. There is no cost to participate.
Tour players will be given a map and game board with participating businesses in Downtown Fort Wayne.
Each business will give a stamp for the game board when players come to visit.
Each business will post a window sign promoting participation.
No purchase is necessary for players to get a stamp.
The first stamp will be given at Germanfest, where there will be a registration table to pick-up game boards.
