LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — The Greater Lafayette Commerce hosted its Small Business Saturday. The annual event promotes small businesses to the community.

"They can actually see what shops are downtown on Main Street and what the Lafayette community and the West Lafayette community offer for residents and the people," said small business owner Cassie Richardson.

Community members had the opportunity to support local businesses.

Small Business Saturday is an annual event designed to support the local economy. Richardson said the exposure that comes with events like these is positive. She said the event also promotes giving back to their neighbors.

"It keeps the money in the community and it helps with different things," said Richardson.

Other businesses involved enjoy the exposure to stay afloat throughout the year.

Kathy's Kandies employee Tori Mullen said getting the word out means business for them.

"It's nice to do it yearly because it helps us if we are struggling a little bit then we can get more money to continue making things," Mullen said.

While small business Saturday is a day dedicated to shopping small, Mullen said community members should always try to stop and see what local businesses are up to.

"Enjoy everything everybody has to offer," Mullen added.

Small Business Saturday also offered free horse-drawn carriage rides and some live music on Main Street.
