Festival of Trees & Window Display Competition

December 1-31 | Participating Businesses Around Town

Town Center shines bright this December with exquisite trees and window displays masterfully decorated by the stores in Town Center. Wander Town Center and use “Santa’s Passport” to guide you to the stores’ spectacular displays. Participating stores welcome you with warm hospitality so you can get a closer look at their holiday decorations and a stamp for your passport. Once you’ve collected 5 stamps, your passport can be redeemed for a FREE HOT CHOCOLATE at The Royal Chocolate. And don’t forget to cast your vote for your favorite holiday display. Town Center gives back as the business that receives the most votes will receive a $500 donation to the charity of their choice.
