This Littleton tradition is a festive evening of holiday lights and music for the whole family. Sip hot cider, listen to holiday music and see reindeer! Donations of non-perishable food for Inter-Faith Community Services are accepted during the evening as well as toys for the Arapahoe Santa Claus Shop. Main Street merchants stay open late for those who want to start their holiday shopping.
Santa Claus and his sleigh will start down Main Street at 6:30pm magically illuminating more than one million lights in the trees as he passes each block. When he reaches the end of Main Street, Santa throws the switch on the big Christmas Tree in the plaza. After that, he will make his way to Town Hall Arts Center for photos and to listen to the first wishes of the season. Main Street closes to vehicle traffic at 4pm on this day. The live reindeer are sponsored by Bradford Auto Body and Western Welcome Week. For more information, call 303-795-3863.
LOCAL IS GOOD! In 2010, American Express founded Small Business Saturday to help businesses. This day encourages people to shop at small businesses on the Saturday after Thanksgiving. The single day has grown into a powerful movement and more people are taking part than ever before. This year, the big day is November 25.
You've heard that patronizing local business is good. But really, what's the big deal?
It may seem that buying distantly produced goods is the way to go to keep your budget under control. However, along with lower prices comes the added cost of repercussions on the environment and impacts on the economic well being of your community, your neighbors, your friends and, ultimately, you. There's a lot of research out there and it can be easily categorized into three headings: 1. Economic Multiplier Effect - Businesses in your town buy more often from other businesses in your town which recirculates more money in your region. Since many business owners live right there in your community, the profits stay in your economy. 2. Sustainability - When you purchase goods made closer to your home, it reduces fossil fuel use, shortens the supply chain and uses less packaging. Nothing bad about any of those things. 3. Community - Local entrepreneurs are more connected to your community and more likely to support community projects. Why? Because just like you, they also have hobbies, go to events, volunteer, dine at local favorite restaurants and donate to favorite local causes.
Downtown Littleton is expanding its annual Shopping Night at an all day event! Look for discounts, specials and refreshments provided by the merchants. Santa will be wandering the streets and photos opportunities will be all around. Merchants will remain open 11am to 8pm. Enjoy the lighted Main Street while holiday shopping.
