Ready or not, it’s time to GET INTO THE HOLIDAY SPIRIT! Believe in Bristol will again sponsor the Annual Christmas Open House in Historic Downtown Bristol on Monday, November 23, 2015, 5:30 pm – 8:30 pm.

Come kick off the holiday season with merriment and good cheer! Santa Claus will be giving out candy canes, Bristol Ballet will have dancers in costume, the Washington–Lee Warblers from Washington Lee Elementary after-school program will perform at 6:30 pm, and MedExpress will again partner with the BELIEVE scavenger hunt.

Last, but certainly not least, a special thank you to Serendipity and Be.Ella Boutique for allowing us to bring back an old favorite, the horse and carriage rides! Come to the Downtown Center (Farmer's Market) to catch your carriage ride through downtown, $5 each person, children 5 and under are free.

“We look forward each year to showcasing our beautiful downtown to the community and surrounding areas. Our Believe in Bristol Downtown Open House is the perfect way to ‘kick-off’ the holiday season. This event offers something to every age, and we hope the attendees will feel the warmth and hospitality of Bristol” said Vicie Dotson, Believe in Bristol Promotions Committee Chair.

Be sure to keep a look out for your favorite decorated window as the downtown merchants will be participating in the Merry Merchants Window Decorating Contest.

The Open House has traditionally been a customer appreciation night when merchants stay open late, have special discounts, and refreshments are served at participating locations. Join us and support your downtown shops; it’s a great way to stimulate our local economy and find special one-of-a-kind gifts for everyone on your holiday list. Don’t miss an evening planned for the entire family’s enjoyment!
