Downtown Bristol Annual Christmas Open House
November 19, 2018 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pmFREE
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 19, 2018, 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, and choirs from Tri-Cities Christian School will perform at 6:30 pm.
Last, but certainly not least, a holiday favorite will return this year — Horse and Carriage Rides! This year we will have two pickup and drop off locations. Come to the Downtown Center (Farmer’s Market) or HomeTrust bank parking lot to catch your ride through downtown, $5 each person for one way and $8 for both ways. Children 5 and under are free.
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!
“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 for every age, and we hope the attendees will feel the warmth and hospitality of Bristol,” said Maggie Bishop, Believe in Bristol Executive Director.
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.
