In preparation for the annual downtown holiday season, Lakeside Artisans is arranging
the decorative displays in Canal Commons.
Garland, ornaments, decorated Christmas trees and brightly wrapped faux presents will adorn the common areas.
Each individual downtown shop is also preparing for the Holiday Open House on November 11 from noon – 5 p.m.
In addition, the downtown merchants are participating in Late Night Shopping on December 14, when the shops will be open until 11 p.m.
Festivities for this event will include entertainment and a raffle for a basket of goodies from the downtown shops.
These events are meant to encourage the buy local movement for the holidays.
The specialty shops in the downtown area along Bridge and West First streets provide
Oswegonians with unique options for gifts.
