TheÂ Oak Ridge Chamber of Commerce is having a networking event for businesses on Thursday.
It’s the second annualÂ Primetime Tailgate Party, and it’s scheduled to run from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. Thursday at theÂ Oak Ridge Chamber of Commerce.
â€œLast yearâ€™s Primetime Tailgate Party was a huge hit among our membership,” saidÂ Parker Hardy, Oak Ridge Chamber of Commerce president. “We are pleased to provide this large-scale networking event and to provide an opportunity for people in the community to come find out more about our member businesses.”
More than 70 Chamber member businesses have already reserved exhibit space at this year’s Primetime, a press release said. Participants have been encouraged to come dressed in their favorite team colors and to decorate their display areas with a football tailgate theme.
The evening will include bluegrass music, food, beverages, door prizes, and a few gamesâ€””everything you would expect in a tailgate environment,” the release said.
In addition, many exhibitors will be holding drawings for door prizes.
The press release said Primetime is designed to stimulate sales, so anyoneâ€”Chamber member or notâ€”is encouraged to attend.
The Chamber is located at 1400 Oak Ridge Turnpike.
