Save the Date for the 4th Annual Light Up the Holidays

 In Uncategorized

The 4th annual Light Up the Holidays is set to kick off with a shop local campaign, holiday window display competition and an assortment of socially distant, family-friendly activities.

Starting on November 13, businesses will be hosting the Shop Til’ You Drop Giveaway, an opportunity to be entered into a weekly prize drawing that leads up to the 28th, which is also Small Business Saturday. Shop local for your Christmas presents and with each purchase, you will be entered into the weekly drawing, as well as the big drawing at the tree lighting ceremony, giving you the chance to win up to $100 in chamber bucks.

For the second year, small businesses are being encouraged to participate in a storefront decorating competition with an emphasis on lights.
Voting will take place on the Light Up the Holidays Facebook page starting on Wednesday the 26th. Winner will also be announced at the tree lighting ceremony.

At 3 p.m. on November 28th, Mrs. Claus will be having a story time on the Light Up the Holidays and Warroad Public Library Facebook page. At 4 p.m. Northern Toboggan will have sleds at Allison park for sledding if there is enough snow. We do encourage that you wear a facial covering and follow standard social distancing guidelines. Grab your warm drinks from Lake of the Woods Coffee Company or Caribou Coffee and head over to Allison Park for the tree lighting ceremony that is set to begin at 5 p.m. The ceremony will include an opening prayer, music, lighting of the tree by the 2020 Woman of Impact, a grab and go style treat, and a special appearance from our favorite jolly man in a red suit! You can participate in this event by joining us outside or by listening in on the FM Transmitter from the warmth of your car.

More details will be coming about this fun hybrid event, so follow Light Up the Holidays on Facebook to stay up-to-date.

The Women of Today are currently seeking nominations for the 2020 Woman of Impact. More information is available on the Warroad Women of Today Facebook page and nominations can be emailed to

Light Up the Holidays is organized collaboratively by the Warroad Area Women of Today, Warroad Chamber of Commerce, and Warroad Community Partners.
