This weekend marks the start of a great holiday season in Wallingford; with the Holiday Stroll on for tonight from 4-9PM and SantaCon and Seasons of Celebration taking place on Saturday, this weekend promises to provide lots of fun of everyone young and old!
This year, a new wrinkle has been added to the mix that will showcase the art and ingenuity of our small business people. The Quinnipiac Chamber of Commerce is sponsoring a Holiday Window & Outdoor Display Contest from December 1st to the 21st to allow small businesses to dress up their windows for the holidays. Not only will their be a winner chosen who has the best window display, but people strolling up and down the street to participating vendors can win too! How? Like this:
Simply visit the participating vendors listed in the graphic below, take a selfie in front of the display and them email it to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject, “Selfie Contest”. You have 21 days to visit as many vendors as you want and take as many selfies as you want and submit them to the email address above. All selfies will be displayed on the Quinnipiac Chamber Facebook page.
In order to VOTE for your favorite display, when you email your selfie in front of your favorite display to the Chamber, make sure you specify IN THE EMAIL that this display is your favorite. Once the contest ends there will be random drawings for several $50 gift cards from the participating vendors!
With all these great events coming up, this weekend is shaping up to be an amazing mix of fun and festivities, not to mention a great way to get out and meet your neighbors and show some love for the many small business owners that are the life’s blood of our community. The weather should be fine for the Stroll tonight so we look forward to seeing you all stop into our real estate office at 116 Center Street for some wine provided by our two amazing wineries and some sandwich and cookie samples courtesy of our friends at Nardelli’s Subs! See you tonight, and make sure you take lots of selfies in front of our window display!
