The streets of downtown Vermilion brighten for this evening of holiday shopping and fun. Downtown merchants open their doors for extended evening shopping hours, many offering special deals and refreshments to visitors. Stroll the downtown district, stop for hot chocolate in Exchange Park courtesy of the Vermilion Lions Club and a sweet treat from the folks at Kingston, who will be bringing their mascot along. Downtown restaurants will have something more grown up for shoppers. Bring the kids to Main Street where they can write a letter to Santa and make a Christmas lantern to light the way.
The Vermilion Arts Guild will be open that night serving up sweet treats. All the artwork and jewelry in the gallery that evening will be 10% off. This is a great place to shop small, shop local and shop for Christmas.
After you shop, head over the Ritter Public Library for a free holiday concert by the Vermilion Community Band at 7PM. 'Tis the season to enjoy your community!
