DURANT – Durant Area Chamber of Commerce and Durant Main Street present “A Hometown Holiday Tour” on Tuesday, Dec. 1 from 6-8 p.m.
In lieu of the Durant Christmas Parade, “A Hometown Holiday Tour” will feature businesses and organizations creating stationary floats and displays at their place of business or festively decorating their property for the holiday season allowing patrons to drive by on their own for a free holiday tour throughout the Durant community.
“We hope our community will enjoy this new twist on the annual Christmas Parade,” said Janet Reed, Executive Director of Durant Area Chamber of Commerce. “Families and friends can put on their pajamas, grab a coffee or hot chocolate from a local coffee shop and enjoy the sights and sounds of Christmas from the comfort and safety of their own vehicle.”
To enter your business/organization to be a stop on the Hometown Holiday Tour, entry forms are available online at www.durantchamber.org or www.durantmainstreet.org and at the Chamber and Main Street offices. Organizations or non-profits without a storefront can fill out the entry form and contact the Durant Area Chamber of Commerce to be assigned a location for your display. Entry deadline is November 20, 2020 to be included on the map.
“Durant Main Street is excited to get to work on our festive Christmas displays downtown,” said Stephanie Gardner, Executive Director of Durant Main Street. “We believe this event will become a fun holiday tradition that continues next year in our community!”
Prior to the event, a map of display locations will be provided online at www.durantchamber.org or www.durantmainstreet.org and at the Durant Area Chamber of Commerce office, located at 215 N. Fourth Ave. and at the Durant Main Street office, located at 110 N. Second Ave. Voting will also take place online to determine a first, second and third place winner of the best display.
