'Jingle and Mingle' with local businesses along Verona Road
Breakfast with Santa, carriage rides, a gift market and pet portraits are all included in the Verona Business Coalition 'Jingle and Mingle' holiday block party event Saturday, December 7.
Verona Road was decorated with construction cones for miles during the massive project, but the cones came down and people can much easier get to the businesses located off Verona Road.
"We have heard people tell us they avoided the area throughout the construction project," Cindy Jaggi, Business Outreach Manager for the Verona Business Coalition, said. "We've got this nice collaboration of businesses working together to create this holiday destination to get people back out into the area and stuff. Then help them with new patterns of coming back to this area to shop, to dine and get various different services and things like that."
Twenty local businesses are hosting holiday activities as a part of the 'Jingle Mingle' event. There are two districts, Fitchburg and Verona.
The block party events go from 9 in the morning to 5 at night. The event is free for everyone to attend.
