All sponsors of this year's Candlelight Shopping will be listed on this web site.
Your listing will include your business name, address, and telephone number. If you have a web site, we'll even provide a link!
We plan to schedule a variety of events and performances designed to enhance shopping and dining, and bring people into our town to enjoy our "Yankee hospitality." Businesses will be decorated for the season, the streets will be lighted with our new antique street lights, and the
sounds of holiday music and carolers will add to the old-fashioned ambiance that folks have enjoyed through past decades!
Many shops in and around town will be participating throughout all three evenings and a full Saturday of this festive annual event. Local and out-of-town shoppers will be treated to a thoroughly enjoyable old-fashioned holiday shopping, dining, and entertainment excursion!
How can you be a part of this wonderful hometown event?
Here are just a few ideas ...
- Stay open for business on all three evenings;
- Provide space -- either indoors or outdoors -- to hold special events;
- Sponsor a bit of musical entertainment (or provide your own!);
- Serve complimentary refreshments -- hot mulled cider, cookies, etc.;
- Offer special discounts or free samples to evening shoppers;
- Donate goods or services - contact Charlie at 568-8800 to see what's needed;
- Send a check to help defray the cost of activities and police details.
Simply choose how you'd like to be involved and let us know! All business participants and sponsors will be listed here on our web site!
We hope that you'll be an active participant in this delightful holiday celebration and help us make this event a great success!
