A new outdoor pavilion will soon stand near the Dow Event Center and it's finally getting a name.
On Thursday it was announced that FirstMerit Bank will be the naming sponsor.
The bank made the announcement at the Saginaw Area Chamber of Commerce meeting Thursday morning.
Earlier this year, FirstMerit Bank purchased Citizen's Bank. The partnership with the Dow Event Center and SMG means the bank has the naming rights for the next five years.
The 5,500-seat FirstMerit Event Park will provide both pavilion and lawn seating for a variety of events. Already scheduled are such events as the second annual Wonderfest on Aug.24, and Fall In for Arts and Sol on Sept. 28.
