Last weekend, a good friend from work invited me to go with her to Chillicothe’s downtown Christmas event. They had a tree lighting with fireworks, sales, wagon rides and other fun things around downtown.
We heard some lovely acoustic guitar music at a business owned by Stef’s friend, took a wagon ride, shopped a little and had a great dinner at The Pour House. For the record, when in doubt, always take the wagon ride. And when the wait is long for a table, absolutely say yes to a seat at the bar. The people watching is fabulous!
It was cold out and dark early, creating a festive atmosphere. Even though it wasn’t even Thanksgiving yet, it was nice to see Santa help with the tree lighting. It was also fun to see downtown Chillicothe brimming with so many people and new businesses.
Speaking of small businesses, Saturday is Small Business Saturday. Be sure to support a small business or two if you can. Small businesses are the backbone of our local communities, typically provide the best customer service, and they appreciate every dollar you spend!
