Ticonderoga Winter will be embraced in downtown Ticonderoga this season.
The Ticonderoga Area Chamber of Commerce will join with the Ticonderoga Montcalm Street Partnership, PRIDE of Ticonderoga and the Ticonderoga Revitalization Alliance to create a “winter wonderland” in the business district.
Merchants are being asked to create winter-theme displays for their storefronts, said Matthew Courtright, chamber executive director. The displays will remain in place throughout the winter.
“The chamber is working with the Ticonderoga Montcalm Street Partnership, PRIDE of Ticonderoga and the Ticonderoga Revitalization Alliance in creating a ‘winter wonderland’ throughout downtown and the Ticonderoga area,” Courtright said. “We are asking all area businesses to have their window displays for the winter season done by Friday, Nov. 30, which is the start of the North Country Christmas Celebration.”
The third annual North Country Christmas in Ticonderoga, sponsored by the Ticonderoga Area Chamber of Commerce, will be Nov. 30 through Dec. 9.
“We are also working with the local schools to have them (students) create scenes in windows in downtown,” Courtright said. “In addition, we are willing to assist other businesses in creating displays if needed. If you are interested please contact the chamber office.”
PRIDE of Ticonderoga and the Ticonderoga Revitalization Alliance will work with Sugar & Spice Country Shoppe to create a display showcasing Ticonderoga businesses.
People who would like to display a product or information on a business can email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 585-6619 for more information.
“You must register to participate by Monday, Nov. 19, “ Courtright said. “Your name will be prominently displayed in the windows showcasing your item.”
PRIDE and the alliance will feature an indoor and outdoor “winter wonderland” theme. Organizers are looking for sleds or shovels for the outdoor display and gift certificates, products and more for the indoor display.
Courtright said the “winter wonderland” displays will play a prominent role in a community event.
