I popped downtown for a little last-minute Christmas shopping last Saturday and discovered even more proof that we live in the greatest little city in the world.
Beautiful horses pulled a sleigh full of laughing families right down College Avenue.
Reindeer munched happily on Houdini Plaza.
Ice sculptures lined the street.
I stood for a moment under a canopy of angels, snapping pictures and absorbing the overwhelming sweetness of the scene.
Children, pudgy in their rainbow-colored snowsuits, waddled. Young couples sipping hot drinks strolled.
Local shops bustled with shoppers eager to spend money. One of my purchases, hand crafted pencils that read “Christmas in Appleton is magic,” summed it up.
Here’s to a thriving Main Street!
We’d like to take a moment to thank Appleton Downtown for the extra effort during this festive season and all year round.
