It's Holiday Time in Silverton

Christmas Tree 2012 - JK
Santa Claus is coming to town on Friday, Dec. 4th as part of the annual Silverton Tree Lighting.  The music and hot chocolate will be flowing starting at 6:00 p.m.   You can also write letters to Santa if you miss sitting on the big guys lap that night.  Speaking of Santa, he will be escorted in to Town Square Park by the Silverton High School Marching Band and on a Silverton Fire Department truck.  Santa with the help of our local Fire Department will shake his magic dust over the tree to light it at 7:00 p.m.   Join local merchants and restaurants in town as they celebrate the First Friday in December – with store open late for your shopping needs.

Shopping In Silverton – Would you like to have an additional $725 in your pocket to spend this holiday season?  Well you could be entered to win that prize as part of the 13th Annual Silverton Shop Hop.  Grab a map and visit the 29 locations that are participating this year.  Each stop you collect a stamp and if you get 25 of the 29 locations, you are eligible for the Grand Prize that $725 to spend in town.  29 additional winners will be drawn as well, one for each participating location.  If you spend a minimum of $5 at a location you can earn an extra entry (if you collect stamps from 25 locations).  What a great way to have a little fun while you shop local.  Maps available in Ourtown or at the Chamber Office – 426 S.
