Williston Downtowners Association Holiday Stroll, Dec. 9-12
December 9, 2020 | View PDF
This year the Holiday Stroll will run from Wednesday, Dec. 9-Saturday, Dec. 12. Some of the great activities planned are listed below.
Dec. 11: Say hello to Santa, 4-6 p.m. - Unfortunately there will be no traditional pictures with Santa this year, but keep your eyes peeled, as the head elf will be strolling around downtown handing out his favorite peppermint treats.
Dec. 11: Ice Carving Demonstration, 2-6 p.m. - The ice sculptures from Minnesota Ice will be back in town creating holiday themed art in the downtown area.
Dec. 9-12: Find The Christmas Pickle: - While there are many myths to this Christmas tradition, one thing is that 2020 has been a bit like a pickle - some sweet, some sour! Shoppers are invited to come downtown and find the Christmas Pickle. Several pickle ornaments will be hiding downtown. When a shopper finds one of the “pickles” they take it into the business listed for a prize, and they get to keep the ornament as well!
Dec. 9-14: 12 Nights of Winemas Raffle - The Williston Downtowners Association is sponsoring a Basket Raffle, featuring 12 baskets with a bottle of wine, glasses, an ornament and other goodies. The baskets will be displayed in the window next to Castle Framing (former Hallmark Building). Shoppers can purchase raffle tickets for $5 at Castle Framing, Style Uncorked, and Cooks on Main. Drawing will be held, Monday, Dec. 14 and announced via social media.
Dec. 11-12: Art of the Nativity, 9:30 a.m.-5 p.m. - Visit the former Hallmark location at 311 Main St. (next to Castle Framing) to see a wide variety of nativity scenes from traditional to modern.
Picture Time All Month - Take a picture with some of the new outdoor photo opportunities downtown, courtesy of the Williston Convention & Visitors Bureau! Santa and his Elves are hanging out at the City Hall Courtyard; a family of snowmen is on the Hedderich’s lot, and a cool Mr. Penguin is at the Renaissance Station Park. There is also a festive photo spot at Castle Framing. Tag #WDAStroll2020 on Facebook to show off your holiday pictures.
Donate an Ornament All Month: There will be Christmas Trees set up on the Hedderich’s lot. Help decorate them by placing a store bought or handmade ornament on the tree!
