Businesses have strung white lights in their windows and doors and created amazing window displays. Shops will be open late and many will be offering refreshments, prizes, and more.
The sidewalks will be lined with holiday luminarias. Businesses may use their own containers for the luminarias, or pick up bags at the Chamber office. Sand to weight the lights is available in the alley near the rear of The Bucyrus Diner. You will need to provide your own candles.
If your neighboring business is not participating in Candlelight Christmas, please consider using extra luminarias to fill in the empty space. The street looks so beautiful when each block is fully lit.
