Join in the holiday fun at a new rendition of Cordova Chamber of Commerce’s Hometown Holiday Kick-off on Friday, December 10th, 2021. Join us at 5:15pm at the Cordova Center for Christmas carols sung by the Cordova High School Music Department. This year, the Cordova Volunteer Fire Department is hosting a Santa Parade at 5:30pm on Main Street. The event will also feature live tree lighting and take place in front of the Cordova Center on Main Street at 5:45pm. Then pop into the Cordova Center at 6:00pm to shop the Chamber Holiday Bazaar.
Lovers of local holiday tradition will be happy to hear that this year’s event will still feature carols and a big beautifully decorated tree. Just like last year, this year’s tree will be living and firmly planted in the ground and more centrally located on Main Street, right between the Cordova Center and Pioneer Igloo.
December 3rd will be the start of Moonlight Madness, a festive Chamber program that encourages local residents to Shop Cordova First during the holiday season. Local businesses stay open late every Friday in December to give Cordovans more opportunities to do their holiday shopping in town. The Chamber circulates a list of participating businesses along with details on Moonlight Madness sales, treats, and festive activities.
Passport to Fun!
It was such a hit last year, that we have decided to bring back Shop Cordova First Passports which make shopping local even more fun. Throughout the holiday season, you can get a stamp for each local retail purchase you make. Then turn it into the Chamber by January 5th, and you could win a nice prize! For every $20 worth of local spending in your Passport, you’ll get an entry to win awesome prizes! Shop Cordova First Passports will be distributed at the Chamber of Commerce, Laura’s, AC Value Center, Cordova Gear, and Nichol’s starting December 1st and at the Holiday Kick-off & Bazaar on December 10th.
As always, this event is completely free to the community, supported by local businesses and volunteers, and is brought to you by the Cordova Chamber of Commerce. If you would like to donate to support the event or volunteer on December 10th, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 907-424-7260.
