The Downtown Glenside Foundation’s annual Winterfest event will take place on Friday, December 2 from 5:00pm to 7:00pm at Wesley Plaza, just off of South Easton Road.
The evening will feature live holiday music from Cat with an Attitude, performances by the Cassidy Dancers and Cheltenham High School’s a capella groups Sons of Pitch and Up the Octave, hot chocolate and cookies, and a visit from Santa, who will arrive on a chauffeured fire truck just after 6:00pm.
This will be the first time in years that First Friday will be part of the celebration.
“It had traditionally been an evening event,” Kathy Phillips, community outreach coordinator for the DGF, said. “But in recent years it merged with, and took place on Small Business Saturday. This year, we decided to keep and celebrate some elements of Small Business Saturday on November 26, but also add back the popular First Friday evening event on December 2.”
Courtesy of the DGF, Holiday Business Bingo Challenge cards are now available at the following participating locations:
Dovetails Artisans, Dreams Ice Cream, Then & Again, DC Interiors, Primex, El Limon, Sweet Magnolia, Moody Jones, Trevi, Lewis Paint, Pinto, Rocky’s, Dress 2 Dance, Mindful Muscles, LLC, Glenside Nails, Giuliano’s, The Nest, Elcy’s Cafe, Vintage Cigar, The Ways Brewery, Enchanted Gift Gallery, Glenside Barber, Mainline Baskets, The Glenside Pub, and Bill’s Best Brewery.
Each participating store is giving out cards to customers to fill in as they shop and dine. Once customers have a line of five, they can submit their cards to win a basket of gift cards on behalf of local businesses.
Two winners will be randomly selected on December 18. Completed bingo cards can be dropped off at Dovetail Artisans Shop any time before or by December 17.
