FOX59’s Kristin Kane and Scott Jones came to Kokomo today for their Your Town Friday segment.  In case you missed it, a recap of their visit and videos can be seen at: http://fox59.com/2014/08/15/your-town-friday-heads-up-to-kokomo/.

Three great local businesses were highlighted, including Kokomo Opalescent Glass, Martino’s Italian Villa, and Kokomo Toys & Collectibles.  They also previewed the Taste of Kokomo, one of Kokomo’s largest events featuring lots of great local food, live music, kid’s activities, and fun food contests and competitions (like the Hot Wing Eating Contest and Taco Throwdown!)  Benefiting the United Way of Howard County, the Taste of Kokomo will be held on Saturday, August 16, 2014 from 5:00-10:30 p.m. in Downtown’s Foster Park.  Admission is free.

Thanks FOX59 for making Kokomo “Your Town Friday!”
