FLYWAY MINIATURES ANYONE??!!
This is a fund raiser for the Fine Arts Center and the Brigham
City Heritage and Arts Board. We still have miniatures available for sale.
The Brigham City Main Street Flyway took to the air a second year in April. They are 18 by 22 inch panels that will again hang from lamp posts on Main street between Forest and First South April - November.   Miniatures of all eight panels are available for purchase at the Fine Arts Center and at the Bear River Bird Refuge Education Center just west of Brigham City.
Pictured here are all 8 of 16 designs.  The miniature 2 x 4 inch cut outs are great Brigham City souvenirs for matting or use as ornaments
