Lake Forest's second COCOA CRAWL...
Saturday, Nov. 27th | 12:00-3:00 pm
Downtown Lake Forest
WOO HOO!! Residents, friends and family joined us and our partners for a very special celebration – all grabbed grab a cup of hot cocoa and treats and jumped on board the Holly Trolley for a swing through the wonderful businesses in downtown Lake Forest – what better way to celebrate ‘Small Business Saturday’!!
The first stop was at the "Cocoa Crawl Station" in Market Square to grab a cup of cocoa and delicious fresh, warm mini donuts courtesy of Market Square, then all hopped on the festive ‘Holly Trolley’ sponsored this year by Realtor Andra O’Neill of @properties – there were trolley stops throughout downtown Lake Forest and riders could hop on and off to visit participating businesses and enjoy shopping discounts, nibbles and sips, and some good old-fashioned fun.
And there’s more… All could enter to win prizes everywhere a purchase was made (check the 40 great raffle prizes listed below!). Our ‘Shop Local Holiday Giveaway’ event started on November 27 and continued all the way through Dec. 4, to allow for visits to all your favorite stores, visiting some new ones, and supporting our wonderful local merchants!
Check out these participating businesses & their great prizes!
