It’s that time of year again! A time for slowing down and taking stock of what matters most in life. A time of carolers visiting your doorstep and holiday decorations in the windows of every store you pass. A time of truly reveling in the holiday spirit and allowing yourself to experience the wonder you did as a child.
And what better way to do all of that and more than at the 2014 Christmas stroll?
Back for its 19th year, the Christmas Stroll is an annual tradition in Sheridan in which residents are encouraged to shop local and local businesses put their best foot forward for the holiday season. From contests to giveaways, the Christmas Stroll in Sheridan makes for a wonderfully memorable holiday experience!
What to Expect If You’re a Sheridan Resident
Organizers say it’s the perfect way to kick off the holiday shopping seasons and get in the spirit of the season!
And unlike shopping at national chains elsewhere, you can actually win prizes while shopping locally! Through the “Get Caught Shopping” giveaways, shoppers seen wearing their Stroll Button while shopping at participating Christmas Stroll businesses on select Saturdays will be eligible to win Chamber Bucks.
In fact, several thousand dollars are expected to be given away to residents this year as a way of saying “Thank You” for shopping locally.
And here’s a friendly tip for all of my Sheridan Wyoming real estate blog readers: The days that the Get Caught Shopping giveaways are expected to occur are Dec. 6, Dec. 13 and Dec. 20.
Are You A Sheridan Business That Wants to Participate in 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.
All participating businesses will receive five Stroll buttons, which they can sell or giveaway.
Businesses will also be featured in all of the Christmas Stroll promotional materials and newspaper advertising.
The Theme of This Year’s Christmas Stroll
Participating businesses that want to participate in the window decorating contest should be aware that the theme this year is “Sugar Plum Stroll.”
Not only is this a fantastic way to build up your business’s name recognition but it’s also a great way to secure bragging rights if you end up winning the contest!
For any additional information or questions, we recommend that you contact the Chamber at 672-2485.
