holly days

This packed 4 days of downtown holiday happenings is put together for you to enjoy! There will be holiday specials, community engaging art to see, dinner and drink special menu items, and Christmas cheer at locations all over downtown.

Thursday, December 3 – Sunday, December 6

Here’s a poem we wrote for you:

We are spreading out our holiday cheer over more than just one night this year.
The new snowflakes will light up a number of streets,
Brockel’s Chocolates, Big Dipper, and Veronika’s will have holiday treats.
After you meet your accountant, banker, chiropractor, or lawyer,
Swing over to a local brewer and they’ll pour you a fresh Scotch Ale, IPA or Sour.
Or if coffee’s your thing you have plenty of options,
before you hit the streets for some local shopping.
Once you’ve found something for everyone on your list,
It’s time to refuel and our downtown restaurants in our opinion are the best.
So who needs one night when you can do this all winter?
Our downtown businesses thank you, and think you’re a winner!
