Moonlight Madness returns to downtown Stettler on Nov. 26

Moonlight Madness returns to downtown Stettler on Nov. 26 with plenty of bargains, sales, promotions and fun for residents to get into the spirit of Christmas and seasonal shopping.

To highlight the day and evening, the traditional Christmas tree located at the intersection of Main Street and 49 Avenue will be lit up by Rob and Marg Grandfield, 2010 Stettler Citizens of the Year, with help from sponsor ATCO Electric at 6 p.m

“This is the annual kick-off for the Christmas shopping season and for businesses to promote their products and services, “said Keith Ryder, executive director of Stettler Regional Board of Trade and Community Development, which is a partner in the annual event with the Town of Stettler and Stettler Downtown Business Association.

Downtown businesses are also gearing up for strong community support.

“Most businesses will be open late at night and most of the promotion will be a super sale,” said Andrea Hatch, president of Stettler Downtown Business Association.

Staged on the final Friday of November, the event is one of the busiest for businesses as the calendar heads into the Christmas shopping season, she noted.

“This is supposedly the best sales day of the year for many businesses,” said Hatch.

Shop-Stettler participants will be sponsoring Santa Claus and goodie bags for children, while ATCO will be selling hot dogs and hot chocolate for a nominal fee, with funds donated to a Stettler charity.

For those last-minute Christmas shoppers and for a festive time with family and friends of all ages, Night Before the Night Before returns Dec. 23.
