If you planning on some candlelight shopping downtown Monroe on December 12, don’t forget to bring along the little ones. Santa will be in town – along with his sleigh and live reindeer.
Stores will be open for shopping until 8:30 p.m. and other Christmas activities are planned. Children can stop by the pocket park for a photo with Santa, and to drop a word in his ear on what they would like to find under the Christmas Tree.
The sleigh and reindeer will be on the Historic Courthouse lawn for holiday photos and Atha Road Elementary Chorus will be performing on the courthouse steps at 6:30 p.m.
While you’re out shopping, don’t forget to check out the businesses’ holiday decorations and vote for your favorite!
