A reminder from the Atlantic Area Chamber of Commerce: Christmas in Atlantic begins this evening (11/19). Grab your family and friends and celebrate the start of the Holiday Season. The Grand Lighting, Snowflake Drop, Santa and his reindeer and carriage rides start tonight in Historic Downtown Atlantic at 5:30 pm! Be sure to come early to shop and to enjoy the recipe walk.
New this year, the Chamber will be having a Snowflake Drop that will be held during Grand Lighting. The Chamber has partnered with local businesses to provide a “snow shower” full of spectacular savings to be redeemed on Small Business Saturday. Snowflakes with incentives will be dropped from the sky for community members to ‘scoop’ up. The Snowflake Drop is sponsored by McDermott & Son Roofing and Brown’s Shoe Fit Co.
In addition to the Snow Flake Drop, Santa’s Reindeer will be at City Park from 5:30-7:30 pm. There will be free horse-drawn carriage rides from 5:30-7:30 pm. Following Grand Lighting, Santa will be taking visitors in his cabin, along with hot cocoa and popcorn from 6:15-7:30 pm. Santa’s Reindeer are sponsored by Atlantic Animal Health Center, Geis Perry Jewelry, Hy-Vee, Marne & Elk Horn Telephone
Company, McCurdy Investments, Megan Roberts State Farm, Nishna Valley Credit Union and Renew Ag Supply. Carriage Rides are being sponsored by Alan & Brenda Zellmer, First Whitney Bank & Trust and Wells Fargo Bank. Santa’s Cabin is sponsored by the Atlantic Rotary Club.
Warm up and enjoy flavors of the season in downtown retail stores with the Recipe Walk. Participating businesses will offer sweet and savory treats and recipe cards for holiday favorites as you shop. Pick up a list of participating businesses at the Chamber starting Wednesday, November 18th anytime from 10 am-5pm.
