Join in the holiday fun at a new rendition of Cordova Chamber of Commerce’s Hometown Holiday Kick-off on Friday, December 4th, 2020. This year, the event will feature a live tree and take place in front of the Cordova Center on Main Street at 6:45pm. NEW this year will be the live streaming of the tree lighting events so Cordovans can watch safely from the comfort of their own homes. – More details to come on the live stream.
Lovers of local holiday tradition will be happy to hear that this year’s event will still feature carols and a big beautifully decorated tree. Just like last year, this year’s tree will be living and firmly planted in the ground and more centrally-located on Main Street, right between the Cordova Center and Pioneer Igloo.
November 27th will be the start of Moonlight Madness, a festive Chamber program that encourages local residents to Shop Cordova First during the holiday season. Local businesses stay open late every Friday in December to give Cordovans more opportunity to do their holiday shopping in town. The Chamber circulates a list of participating businesses along with details on Moonlight Madness sales, treats and festive activities. This year, the event is going to a new level with the release of Cordova Cash!
Passport to Fun!
It was such a hit last year, that we have decided to bring back Shop Cordova First Passports which make shopping local even more fun. Throughout the holiday season, you can get a stamp for each local retail purchase you make. Then turn it into the Chamber by January 1st, and you could win a nice prize! For every $20 worth of local spending in your Passport, you’ll get an entry to win awesome prizes! Shop Cordova First Passports will be distributed at the Holiday Kick-off on December 4th, and at the Bidarki Holiday Bazaar on December 4th, 11th, 12th, 18 & 19thth.
As always, this event is completely free to the community, supported by local businesses and volunteers, and is brought to you by Cordova Chamber of Commerce. If you would like to donate to support the event or volunteer on December 4th, email email@example.com or call 907-424-7260.
