Home for the Holidays event taking place Friday through Sunday (Nov 25-27) downtown. We will have an ice skating rink, open air market, free movies in Pilgrim Plaza, Santa Claus and more. Our hope is that this will attract both community members and people from other surrounding communities. This event might be a good time to advertise sales, specials, have sidewalk sales, etc. and capitalize on all the people we are planning on being in town for this event!
