Join us downtown November 17 for the Holiday Stroll! Though downtown is in a current state of rebuilding we are going to celebrate the holidays!
Festivities will stretch Third Avenue to Third Street along Main Street and will include live entertainment, food vendors and children’s activities. Downtown businesses will have extended hours so people can come in and enjoy refreshments and browse merchandise.
Most of the activities will be headquartered at Xtreme Dance, the Tallcorn, Van Gogh’s and various churches. Santa’s Workshop, sponsored and organized by the Time-Republican’s marketing department, will be set up at Xtreme Dance.
The evening parade, horse-drawn carriage rides and Tiny Tim Tree Festival have all been postponed until 2019.
