A Successful Armadillo Awards

We added a fifth year to our Armadillo Awards on April 26 and what a grand celebration it was. More than 1,000 nominees, 35 finalists, 7 awardees, 3 Hall of Fame inductees made for a great celebration. Add in World Famous Bob, our new MC; Rick “Daddy” McNulty spinning tunes and the Texas Roller Girls and it made a great program.
But what made it an amazing evening was you. The Armadillo Awards began as a way to acknowledge, honor and celebrate local business. Five years later it has truly become the indie biz party of the year. More than just a party, it’s a gathering of the tribe of local business. Nowhere else do we see so many new and iconic local business owners in one place. If you missed this year, put this on your calendar for next year. The AIBA Community is alive and well.
The evening isn’t all about the award recipients but of course it’s a big part of why we gather.
See all finalists and Dillo recipients.
