As you stroll through charming downtown locations, you’ll be enchanted by the sight of beautifully themed Christmas trees at many of them.

These trees are part of the Downtown Bellefontaine Partnership’s annual fundraiser, featuring themed Christmas trees.

You can cast your vote for your favorite tree by purchasing a $1 vote at the locations you adore.

You’ll have the entire month of November to explore all the trees and cast as many votes as your heart desires.

Mark your calendars for November 29th, as it’s not just a day for turning in your passport, they also be holding a special drawing for Christmas trees, and you could be the lucky winner of your favorite tree.

The Holiday Open House weekend will be a joyous occasion for downtown, featuring performances by local school choirs and bands, filling the air with the delightful sounds of the season.

This is a great way to get things checked off your holiday shopping list and enjoy the Christmas spirit.
