The holiday season is here again, and celebrations already have begun in Vestavia Hills as the chamber and city host the annual Holiday in the Hills event series.
The Chamber of Commerce has been hosting an ongoing Shop, Dine, Play Bingo challenge to encourage holiday shoppers to purchase gifts locally.
There are five cards to choose from, which can be picked up at the chamber offices at the Vestavia Hills Civic Center or printed from the chamber website. Each card features an arrangement of local retail businesses and restaurants.
When you make a purchase from a participating merchant, mark off their name and store the receipt in an envelope. Each completed Bingo card will count as one entry in a prize drawing.
Bingo cards must be turned in by Nov. 25, and a winner will be drawn at the city’s Tree Lighting Festival.
The festival will take place Dec. 3 at 6 p.m. at Vestavia Hills City Hall and includes musical entertainment, merchant giveaways and a visit from Santa.
Fun for the whole family, the annual Breakfast with Santa will be held Dec. 7 from 7:30 a.m. to 10 a.m. in the Vestavia Hills Civic Center’s Dogwood Room.
Citywide festivities will conclude Dec. 8 with the annual Vestavia Hills Christmas Parade and Celebration from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. The parade will begin at Liberty Park Sports Complex and travel to Alston Meadows Park, where a holiday celebration will take place.
