The Greater Taylorville Chamber of Commerce has set their holiday events, dates, and times that the community will not want to miss. Getting us into the holiday spirit will be a Gingerbread House Contest for the kiddos, The drop off for entries is November 20th at the Real Estate Group located at 119 West Main Cross in Taylorville. Judging and ribbon placing will be held on November 30th and the delectable domiciles will be on display until December 2nd.
The Festival of Trees will have decorated wreaths and trees on display in the Milling Building located at 405 West Main Cross in Taylorville from November 20th to December 2nd, then a live auction for those arrangements on December 1st from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. And even an appearance from the Grinch to snap a few photos.
The final event, incorporating many local players is the Christmas Business After Hours on December 6th, in the decorated West Side Tavern located at 109 South Washington Street on the Taylorville Square. The after-hours event will be hosted by the West Side Tavern and Design By Detail, with food catered by Carrlie’s Charcuterie and featuring a Giving Tree for Kemmerer Village.
Linda Allen, Executive Director of the Greater Taylorville Chamber of Commerce, and Cindy Frisina, President and CEO of the Heartland Development partners began these plans back in August and are excited for the upcoming months of events.
Allen expands on the Giving Tree process and Kemmerer Villages' involvement. Two trees will be on display at the West Side Tavern and a box for donations of unwrapped presents will be on hand.
This year's Festival of Trees event will have trees and wreaths provided by the chamber for families or organizations to decorate.
