Small Business Saturday™ Holiday Extravaganza in Downtown Sharon

While some consumers revel in the chaos of Black Friday, Small Business Saturday™ in beautiful downtown Sharon offers a more traditional holiday appeal to shoppers.  Shoppers can enjoy “Selfies with Santa”, carolers, plus refreshments throughout the day. Dozens of local artists will have pop-up sales in addition to the many boutique stores available for unique, one-of-a-kind holiday shopping.

Small Business Saturday™ kicks off Sharon’s annual month-long DownTown ShopAround.  Thousands of dollars-worth of prizes will be given away. Shoppers can register throughout the holiday shopping season at the stores of their choice, and the winners’ names will be drawn December 22 at the end of business.

The culmination of the Small Business Saturday™ Holiday Extravaganza is the spectacular Night of Lights celebration. Sure to please everyone, there is free hot cocoa and candy, main stage entertainment, the annual lighting of the Holiday Cherub Torch and Santa himself magically lights up the Christmas Tree and sky with fireworks.

You should also consider visiting Kraynak’s for more holiday fun.  Every year Kraynak’s features a one-of-a kind attraction called Santa’s Christmasland. This attraction features over 70 decorated trees, each featuring their own theme. This display features everything from traditional winter themes like snowmen to nativity décor.  Visitors can walk the 300-foot long path of Christmasland full of animated figures and festive music to get into the holiday spirit!
