SHERIDAN — The 2016 Christmas season will soon be upon us and that means it is time to get registered for the annual Christmas Stroll.
This year will be the 21st annual stroll on Main Street held, per tradition, the day after Thanksgiving from 4-8 p.m. The event helps to kick off the official Christmas shopping season and provide opportunities for businesses to get in the Christmas spirit by selling Christmas Stroll buttons.
The Sheridan County Chamber of Commerce is inviting all Sheridan County businesses to participate in this year’s Christmas Stroll. The cost to participate is $125 for Chamber members and $175 for non-members and a prize donation of at least a $50 value. Each participating business will receive five stroll buttons to sell or give away as well as inclusion in all Christmas Stroll promotional materials and newspaper advertising.
This year’s theme is “Storybook Stroll” and there will again be the window decorating contest. The winner of the stroll button design contest will be announced on Nov. 1 at 4 p.m. with a special presentation by Mayor John Heath at Sheridan City Hall.
This year’s “Get Caught Shopping” giveaways will take place Dec. 3, Dec. 17 and Dec. 20. Shop at any business participating in the Christmas Stroll with your stroll button on those three Saturdays and you could immediately win Chamber Bucks. Several thousand dollars will be given to those choosing to shop local this season.
The deadline to sign up as a participating business is Oct. 31. See www.sheridanwyomingchamber.org for the registration form.
For any additional information or questions, call the Chamber at 672-2485.
