Also kicking off this weekend, the serendipitous return of the Holiday Train Walk!  Not yet able to return to their forever home at Fire Station #2, the HCFD & Friends volunteers have brought their wonderland magic to 9 Main Street windows!  Each has its own theme and virtual scavenger hunt.  Stay tuned for location details and QR codes for the hunt.

While you’re strolling, take note of how we’ve decked out our halls – the Holiday Window Contest starts today!  Vote for you favorite and be entered to win a $50 OEC Gift Certificate to the OEC business of your choice.  Cast your vote HERE.
