Chemainus Moonlight Madness is a one-night-only event on Thursday, Dec. 3, offering shoppers the chance to enjoy activities, sales, giveaways and specials from 4:30 to 8 p.m. throughout the community while enjoy the beauty of Mural Town all lit up for the Christmas season.
Businesses within the business improvement area are staying open late, giving deep discounts, offering mini in-store events, and even prize giveaways. Service businesses are handing out free goodies and a warm place to sit. Some local restaurants are open much beyond their usual hours, offering specials, take-away deals, and even bites to eat while shopping.
A small craft market is planned as well. Local school groups will be offering child-minding and gift wrapping while service groups offer free crafts and games along Willow Street. Christmas trees will be available for purchase as well.
According to the BIA organizer Krystal Adams, “the community has rallied in support of this event ensuring there is lots to eat, see, buy and partake in. This is simply because of the community support we have received and the members willingness to try something new.”
