It’s the most wonderful time of the year! The Village of Springville is decorated with lights and the weatherman has brought us our first ground covering of snow just in time for Very Merry Main Street on Friday, Nov. 24 from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. and Saturday, Nov. 25 from 10 a.m.– 4 p.m. to kick off a month full of festive fun.

Wear your holiday finest and try to compete with the owners of Sheret Jewelers who boast of having the best Christmas outfits in town.  Over 50 businesses are participating in A Very Merry Main Street this year with shoppers having the chance to win a $300 cash prize.

Local merchants that are not located on Main Street will be set up inside Love Inc, Concord Land Realty, Locals Lifestyle, Sheret Jewelers and the Lucy Bensley Center offering a wider variety of local goodness to choose from this season.

And you won’t want to miss out on the special “off the wall” exhibit, Petit Noel: Giftable Fine Arts and Crafts at Springville Center for the Arts.

Rumor has it that Santa and his Mrs. will be making an appearance as well.

And let’s not forget, LJ Grand Livery Stables will be offering horse and carriage rides on Saturday starting at 12 p.m., Bring a new, unwrapped toy as your ticket to ride!

Also on Saturday, the Joylan Theatre is partnering once again with the Springville Kiwanis for a double feature of Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer and Frosty the Snowman starting at 10 a.m. Please bring one small unwrapped toy per person as admission to the movie. All donations benefit the Kiwanis Club of Springville Toys for Tots Toy Drive.

And that’s just the beginning of the festive fun in Springville. Make sure to check out these other upcoming Holiday Happenings as well.
