The purpose of the 12 Days of Christmas is to encourage everyone to visit and shop downtown during the holiday season. It is also a way of organizing all the events happening downtown in one central location so everyone knows what is scheduled and can plan accordingly.

“There are always lots of things going on during the holidays,” says Huddleston. “The calendar helps everyone know what is happening downtown – hopefully, you can join us for one, two or all of the events.”
