Planning Ahead: Holiday on Main!



Believe it or not - it is time to plan for Holiday on Main!

This year we will be utilizing a similar format to last year.

Forest St. Lot Family Activities

  • Downtown Welcome Tent (Map, Contests & More)
  • Family-Friendly Activities by Local Businesses & Nonprofits (All Downtown Members & Sponsors are welcome!)

Downtown Map
Bring shoppers into your business by hosting a fun activity, craft, contest, game, etc.!
Succesful ideas from last year included:

  • Facepainting
  • Photo Opportunities (Meet an Elf! Cast of Nutcracker, etc.)
  • North Pole Post Office
  • Caroling & Cocoa
  • Custom Gifts (ie. customizing ornaments, cocoa mugs, etc.)

We already have a few groups that are interested in helping as well. For example, if you have a place that could feature a performance by  the MHS Choir or Winter Gaurd, let us know!

What will you do this year? Plan ahead and let Joy know ASAP! You can reach her at [email protected]
