Bishop Chamber Of Commerce Planning Several Fun And Festive Christmas Events

Bishop Chamber of Commerce

 

The Bishop Chamber of Commerce is busy planning several fun & festive Christmas events and they’d like to remind local businesses that now is the time to sign up to participate.

The parade is set for Saturday, December 4th, beginning at 4:30pm and this year’s theme is “White Christmas.” Immediately following the parade, will be the Tree Lighting Ceremony in the front of Bishop City Park. Parade entry forms are now available and due by November 26th.

On Saturday, December 11th, Railroad Express will return to Laws Museum. From 10am until 3pm, families will enjoy holiday crafts & activities, train rides, Smokey Bear, Santa Claus, wagon rides and refreshments. Tickets are $15 for those over 12 years old; $10 for ages 3 through 12; and free for kids under 3.

The chamber is also organizing the ever-popular “Shop Local Holiday Raffle.” Participating merchants will have raffle boxes and entry forms; shoppers can enter once at each location 12/3 through 12/17; winners will be announced on Monday, December 20th. Prizes will include gift certificates from participating merchants and grand prize is a $500 local shopping spree. This raffle replaces the map stamping raffle that was done in previous years and is open to any business in the Bishop area.

We want to encourage people to shop in all of our local stores this holiday season and we hope this raffle program will be a great incentive,” explains April Leeson, Chamber Event Coordinator.

For more information, stop by the Bishop Chamber, 690 N. Main Street or call 760-873-8405.

Would love to shop and support locally if there were actually stores to shop for my family in. How did our city deteriorate to this level? Bishop used to have a main street lined with a variety of wonderful stores that met the needs of this community and enticed those… Read more »

The Instagrammers and tick-tokers killed main street. Also, there is a short documentary you should watch that explains a bit more…. Search youtube for “Video Killed The Radio Star” and you will have your answer.

I don’t necessarily agree with you because we have an older community here the internet buying is not as extreme. And I think most people in this community would prefer to go to the store and pick out what they want except for maybe specialty items they would order online.… Read more »

Yep. It is always so shocking to me that with only a couple exceptions, Bishop retail has always closed down promptly at 5 p.m. Even in summer when the visitors are often still out enjoying nature and haven’t returned to town yet. Several years ago City of Bishop and Chamber… Read more »
