Holiday Open House returns to South Boston Sunday
SoVaNow.com / November 21, 2013
Christmas is drawing nigh in downtown South Boston as merchants prepare to host their annual Open House shopping event this Sunday, November 24 from 1 to 5 p.m.
Downtown will be decked out in holiday finery — with twinkling lights, decorations and seasonal music piped out onto the street — as shoppers stroll past shops and businesses that will be holding special sales for the Sunday event. The festivities are meant to evoke memories of Christmas past, a simpler time when the pace was less hectic and people could rely on the helping hands of their local merchants.
All shoppers are invited to South Boston’s 27th annual Christmas Open House and encouraged to register to win a $100 downtown gift certificate.
Visitors will also have an opportunity to have their photo taken with Santa Claus from 1 to 4 p.m. at Moving Voices, The Isadora Duncan Cultural Exchange building at 419A Main Street. C-Action Photography’s David Conner II will offer 4x6 pictures with Santa onsite for $5, or 5x7s for $8 and 8x10s for 15. Various backgrounds are available with the photo sessions. And as always, visitors should feel free to bring their own camera and visit with Santa.
Continuing the holiday celebration, the South Boston Christmas Parade sponsored by Destination Downtown South Boston and Elliott, Inc. is set for Saturday, December 7 at 5 p.m. For more information or an application to participate in the parade, go to http://www.downtownsobo.com or call (434) 575-4208.
