HARTLAND (WWJ) — The Michigan website and marketing firm Five Sparrows LLC announced Thursday that it will be handling the official social media communications for this year’s Milford Memories Summer Festival Aug. 9-11. The annual festival is held each year in downtown Milford, and is hosted by the Huron Valley Chamber of Commerce.
By adding a real-time social media component to the festival this year, visitors will be able to get up-to-the-minute event information, schedule changes, and real-time weather alerts delivered directly to their cell phones. They can also use social media to ask questions or get specific information during the event, as well as to get the latest event news, pictures, and videos via social media channels.
The Five Sparrows mobile office will be parked at the corner of Main and Liberty streets, where staff members will be tweeting on Twitter, posting on Facebook, and messaging on mobile throughout the entire weekend. All official schedule changes, event announcements, or other time-sensitive information will be published through social media as well.
Said Lauren Hobson, president of Five Sparrows: “Visitors can get festival news, updates, and reminders delivered right to their mobile phones, and it gives Milford Memories a way to communicate during the event with the people who are following them socially.”
In addition to real-time social updates, Milford Memories’ Followers and Friends will have access to the latest festival photos, videos, and other sharable information that Five Sparrows will be posting during each day of the event.
Visitors who want to receive Milford Memories social media updates on their mobile phones can text “follow milfordmemories” to 40404.
To join the conversation on Twitter, visitors should use the hashtag #milfordmemories.
