Foley Main street lights up downtown for Christmas season

Posted

Foley Main Street is working on lighting up Downtown Foley.

The organization is giving each of the main street district businesses two 33-foot strands of warm white lights. The project is just in time for the holidays, but the ultimate goal is to light up Downtown Foley year-round.

Main Street's volunteers have been distributed lights early in November so that the businesses can have them up in time for Downtown Foley's Christmas Open House on Dec. 3 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. immediately following the Foley Kiwanis Club's Christmas Parade, which begins at 10 a.m.

Look for the Grinch who will be hanging around downtown for pictures. This is in conjunction with the City of Foley's Let It Snow event in Heritage Park beginning at 11 a.m. There will be snow flurries in the park, kids' activities, live entertainment and a Christmas marketplace, and Santa will be there as well.

Foley Main Street is also having their inaugural window decorating contest where Downtown Foley businesses have the opportunity to win a $500 or $250 prize. The entrants will be posted on Foley Main Street's Facebook page by Dec. 3. Whichever decorated businesses receive the most likes/loves will win prizes. People can look at the windows in person at the Open House on Dec. 3. Voting closes Dec. 16. For more information, send questions to foleymainstreet@gmail.com.
