Bristol: Annual Christmas Open House
November 25, 2019 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm
A Holiday Tradition in Historic Downtown Bristol:
You are cordially invited to the Annual Christmas Open House
It’s the most wonderful time of the year in Historic Downtown Bristol as Believe in Bristol welcomes the holiday season with the Annual Christmas Open House on Monday, November 25, 2019, from 5:30 pm – 8:30 pm.
Come kick off the holiday season with merriment and good cheer! 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!
Santa Claus will be giving out candy canes and Bristol Ballet will have dancers in costume. 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 with the theme: Favorite Christmas Movie. Last year’s winner, Brown Edwards, won the Tacky Christmas theme with a wonderfully creative scene display from a holiday favorite: National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation.
Last, but certainly not least, a holiday favorite will once again return to State Street — Horse and Carriage Rides! Come to the Downtown Center (Farmer’s Market) to catch your ride through downtown, $5 per 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 Christmas Open House is the perfect way to get into the holiday spirit. This event offers something for every age and interest, and we hope everyone who attends will feel the warmth and hospitality of Downtown Bristol,” said Maggie Elliott, Believe in Bristol Executive Director.
