Christmas on Court Celebrates Another Year of Holiday Spirit
Pekin, IL- A quintessential Christmas experience returned to Downtown Pekin this past Friday, December 2nd. Santa made an appearance along with Abraham Lincoln and the Grinch (maybe in more than one place). Businesses in the downtown area were open for shopping as well as pop-up market vendors for a diverse holiday shopping experience. Christmas on Court is hosted by the Pekin Area Chamber of Commerce in collaboration with the City of Pekin Tourism Committee, Discover Pekin, and Discover Peoria. This family event emphasizes supporting a “shop small” initiative with the Pekin community. #ShopLocal365 is a regional partnership encouraging community members to shop local at the holidays and year-round. With each community in the Greater Peoria region offering unique specialty retailers, the Pekin Area Chamber of Commerce invites residents and guests from the region to use Christmas on Court as an opportunity to visit and shop Pekin.
