volunteers hanging lights on Main St.

Volunteers hung lights, decorations and got some cleaning done on Main Street last weekend in preparation for this weekend and the Holiday Stroll.


Main Street Duncan got a holiday make over last weekend by some volunteers just in time for the award winning Holiday Stroll event.

The sip-and-snack event offers customers the opportunity to kick start the holiday shopping season with discounts, new items and more. Main Street merchants will offer snacks and refreshments. Customers can stroll from store to store between 5 to 8 p.m. Saturday.

Executive Director Destiny Ahlfenger is excited to get people down for the evening.

“What we do have is new merchandise, deals of the day, deep discounts and trunk shows at a variety of participating stores,” she said.

Of course, Santa will make his stop on Main Street that night.

“Santa will be strolling the sidewalk, so if the kids want to bring their wish list, or tell him what they want for Christmas or grab a quick photo, they can find him strolling on Main Street,” Ahlfenger said.

Stores will open as usual during Saturday afternoon according to Ahlfenger.

“I would encourage people to check out their favorite stores and see what fun things they’re going to offer,” she said. “The stores will be open regularly on Saturday, but usually they offer the good discounts and deals during the 5 to 8 p.m. hours of the stroll.”

Vendors also will make an appearance on Main Street and this year they have created a special “pop-up market” for them at 913 W. Main St. which will feature vendors ranging from make-up to high-end boutique fashion and some treats for the season.

There will be a chance to do some good by bringing a coat for the “free coat” rack in front of Jeannie Kay Designs. The store has done this for the last few years where anyone who needs a coat can come get one off the special rack for free.

Vendors will have one hour before the event to set up displays after the location is approved from Main Street Duncan.
