GET LIT

Even if you don't plan to enter the "Let's Get Lit" holiday lighting contest, get into the season and decorate! There is nothing more cheerful in the dark of winter than sparkling holiday lights! Let's attract visitors from miles around with our holiday spirit!

SHOP LOCALLY THIS HOLIDAY SEASON

A shift in spending as small as 4% can have a big impact on a small town economy. Keep your dollars at home this Christmas and support our local businesses and our community! During Tinsel & Tidings, you'll also be supporting your local arts and non-profits as well!
