The Greater American Falls Area Chamber of Commerce is pleased to announce the re-establishment of an American Falls tradition – the official kickoff of the Christmas season on the first Saturday of December. This year’s theme is “Light the Spirit Within.”
We’re “Lighting the Spirit Within” with a day full of events, including two Christmas bazaars, a visit from Santa Claus, hot chocolate, carols, the reading of Christmas stories, decorating of gingerbread houses, and a Christmas lighting ceremony.
We are also bringing back the American Falls merchant Christmas raffle! Pick up your raffle punch cards at local participating merchants. For every $50 you spend with those local merchants, you get an entry to win the prize package which includes Christmas gift basket from Gate City Realty, gift cards good for local businesses, and a tablet donated by Rockland Pharmacy/Radio Shack. Numerous local organizations are also planning fun activities for the whole family to enjoy.
Thank you to the Power County Press for the excellent article on the event.
This event, sponsored by the Chamber, is also sponsored and supported by the following organizations: Rockland Pharmacy/Radio Shack, Gate City Realty, Napa Auto Parts, American Falls Art Guild, American Falls District Library, American Falls High School, Methodist Church, American Falls Little Theatre, R&B Drive-In, Ken’s Market, American Falls Christian Fellowship, Powerhouse Christian Fellowship, St. John’s Lutheran Church, and AF Sharps. Thank you to everyone for your hard work and donation of time to make this event a success!
