It’s a day that only comes around every four years.
And downtown businesses will roll out some specials for Leap Day that also don’t come around all too often.
Appleton Downtown Inc. will hold its “Leap Local” event on Saturday and participating businesses will offer plenty of great reasons to spend the extra day shopping, drinking, tasting and otherwise enjoying what downtown has to offer.
Shoppers who leap from one business to another will be entered to win Downtown Appleton gift certificates.
