Community members are invited to grab some samples and meet Grimes business owners during the ninth annual Experience Grimes: A Tasteful Business Expo.


The expo will be held from 4:30 to 7 p.m. on Tuesday, March 26 at Performance Display and Millwork, 1400 SE 11th St. in Grimes.


Kayla Bruns, Chief Operating Officer with Grimes Chamber and Economic Development, said the event will feature over 40 vendors. Many of those vendors will feature food or drink samples.


Families are invited to the event, Bruns said, as it will also feature face painting and balloon artistry. Door prizes will be given away every 30 minutes.


Participants can also pick up a Bingo card and have it filled out at the various booths on the card. Those who fill out the card can then enter the grand prize drawing for a pair of Apple AirPods.


Bruns encourages Grimes and surrounding community residents to come out and meet the faces behind local businesses.


“It’s nice to see the community come out and support those businesses and grab a sample or two,” she said.
