The Wicker Park Bucktown Chamber of Commerce announces its new holiday window activation program, Window Wonderland, kicking off on Small Business Saturday, November 30, 2019, and running through December 30, 2019. Dozens of businesses across Wicker Park and Bucktown are decorating their windows in holiday themes, and shoppers can vote on the best windows for a chance to win one of ten raffle prizes. A special free public performance of holiday carols will be given by the Chicago Children’s Choir on Saturday, December 7 at 2 p.m. at a location in Wicker Park/Bucktown to be announced later. For updates, go to www.wickerparkbucktown.com.
To vote, shoppers will receive a passport with purchase from any participating Window Wonderland store, and get a stamp from each store they visit. With stamps from ten stores collected between November 30 and December 30, 2019, voters are eligible to enter a raffle for a $50 AMEX gift card, given to ten winners. Completed passports can be dropped off at ambassador locations on each main street in the Wicker Park and Bucktown commercial corridors, including Damen Avenue, Division Street, North Avenue and Milwaukee Avenue. Online voting will be available with a social media hashtag to be announced on a later date.
