Do Division Fest 2015

Do Division is this weekend! Holiday Jones and Urban Holiday Lofts couldn’t be more excited. We get a lot of visitors coming in for this event since it’s just outside our front door. This year it’s poised to be bigger than ever before. The festival takes place Friday May 29th – Sunday May 31st. Although the music alone would be reason enough to attend there is a ton of other great entertainment. Here’s what’s in store for Do Division 2015.
