‘Tis the season to get your shop on!

It’s that magical time of the year where the lights are twinkling, the drinks are warm, and grabbing your favourite person to stroll through the shops is one of the holiday’s most famed traditions.

The sweet and charming town of Sidney offers the perfect backdrop to do just that, and to kick-off the season of giving, they’re hosting their annual Merchants Open House – and you’re invited to celebrate!

On Saturday, November 23rd from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. you can join the Sidney BIA in a warm welcome to the most wonderful time of the year – with a night full of fun activities and treats!

There will be FREE horse-drawn carriage rides, visits with Santa himself, and even a must-try Winter Wonderland Instagram installation for those picture-perfect photo-ops – and this is all on top of just about the best customer service you could imagine.

Adding to the holiday spirit, you can win yourself a little magic – you’ll have the chance to win big in Sidney’s 12 Days of Giveaways, just by making a purchase at a participating Sidney merchants between November 23rd and December 22nd – just fill out an entry ballot in store and be entered to win over $2500 worth of prizes!
