In response to the Mtn.City business owner’s concern for the Chamber not having Christmas on Main this year…the Chamber board will again light the trees on Main Street. Placing lights on the trees and finding operating power sources takes time and effort, but we feel the results are appreciated by the community.
Mr. Coolahan either left the meeting early or did not hear the discussion that the lights will be done but not the festivities as last year. Because the vendors pay for their spots, they should at least have a power source.
Hopefully, the city can one day solve this issue. The downtown merchants do a wonderful job decorating their storefronts, bringing much festivity to viewers. The Chamber Board will be offering 1st, 2nd, and third place ribbons as well as gift cards to the winners. We encourage all businesses to decorate their windows and make our lovely brick sidewalks and wreathed lamp posts little town look amazing and festive!
The Scarecrows on Main are awesome again this year, and we appreciate the hard work and artistic talent displayed.
In closing, your Chamber of Commerce board will have the Christmas parade on December 7, with Santa lighting the large tree at the conclusion of the parade. We are hopeful we will have a large participation for entries, and many will come out for it.
We hope this has answered any questions pertaining to Christmas on Main.
