A special thank you to Serendipity and Be.Ella Boutique’s for allowing us to bring back an old favorite, Horse and Carriage rides to the Open House event. There are 2 locations planned for pick-up / drop-off, The Downtown Center (Country Music Mural/Farmers Market area) and TriSummit Bank parking lot, a small charge of $2 per person for a one-way ticket down State Street or $4 per person for a round-trip ride.
Keep a look out for your favorite decorated window as the downtown merchants will be participating in the Merry Merchants Window Decorating Contest. The theme this year is from the movie “The Christmas Story” and A Major Award will be given to the winner!
The Open House has traditionally been a customer appreciation night when merchants stay open late, have special discounts, and refreshments are served at participating locations.Join us and support your downtown shops; it’s a great way to stimulate our local economy and find special one-of-a-kind gifts for everyone on your holiday list!
