Greg keeps the Downtown humming by coordinating the summer concerts, both the Lunchtime Live series and the Heid Music Summer Concerts. He has been the chairman of the Flag Day, Memorial and Christmas parades since 1985 and also helps assist with other events. If you don’t know Greg you are probably not from around here! He lives just outside Downtown Appleton and loves it!
Meghan is a born and raised Appleton resident and is no stranger to Downtown Appleton events! She has been a part of the Farm Market staff for over 9 years. Parades are in her blood as her Grandfather Bud, father Greg Otis, and now brother Corey Otis have served as parade chairman; not to mention Meghan has served on the committee for almost 15 years. She loves how much Downtown Appleton has to offer from great shopping, dining, and attractions. Meghan is excited to now play an even larger role in the events.
