Roscoe brings families and businesses together with Hometown Holiday event

Print Article

ROSCOE - Bringing families and businesses together is the mission of Roscoe Hometown Holiday organizers.

This year's event will be held from 4 - 7 p.m. on Saturday and feature a "Passport to the North Pole" activity, where participants can stop by 16 different businesses along Main Street that will each be hosting their own activities, event coordinator Lori Taylor said.

"I thought about a traditional Christmas, when you have people coming together to do crafts and such and have a good time," Taylor said.

Instead of the typical parade, this community-style social night is meant to help get families away from technology and do holiday activities together. As opposed to many tree lightings, there will just be one large tree lighting in Downtown Roscoe at 6 p.m.

"The residents and community can get to know the businesses we have, and the adults and children can come together to work on holiday crafts and more," Taylor said.

The fun begins with pre-parties starting at 2 p.m. Lifestyle Chiropractic will be offering adult beverages and hot chocolate, and Nspired Yoga will be teaching yoga moves until 4 p.m. in the Main Street Square.

Here's what other businesses are offering during the Passport to the North Pole event:

• Beyond the Door is offering Story Time with Holly Claus while the adults browse through the store.

• A Little Bird Told Me is helping residents make vintage ornaments.

• Kids can mail letters to Santa, take a picture with the man himself or spin the naughty or nice wheel at the village hall.

• Participants can decorate a cookie with the Clauses at Firehouse Pub.

• The kids can visit Santa while the adults do some shopping at K. Paige.

• Make a family ceramic ornament at R & L Ceramics.

• The Roscoe United Methodist Church will be serving Wassail punch, and the sanctuary will be open for quiet prayer.

• Meyer's Canine Colony will offer s'mores by the bonfire.

• Families can have fun making a Christmas Tree Picture Frame at The Gym.

• Board & Brush is offering a three-piece Gingerbread project for $15.

• 808 Cheesecake is offering samples and cookie decorating.

• Share Serendipity is helping residents make holiday cards for loved ones.

After the holiday fun is over, starting at 7 p.m. there will be two post parties. Firehouse Pub is hosting an ugly Christmas sweater party, and Louie's Tap House is encouraging residents to wear their craziest hats.
