List of Events for Wyandotte's 'Paint the Town Pink'

Many activities, including a wine tasting, a photography exhibit and a bra display, are set for October. Check the list often as new activities continue to be added.

Wyandotte business owners and other volunteers are coming together for a common cause in October.

“Paint the Town Pink” is a collaborative effort of many downtown business owners who have banded together under the name “Tatas Task Force” to host several events to promote breast cancer awareness.

The event, with the motto of “Educate, Celebrate, Remember,” is being held in conjunction with October being National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
