History of Sheridan Christmas Stroll:
The Sheridan Christmas Stroll has been held the day after Thanksgiving for the past 28 years and is the official kick off for the Christmas season!
Each year, Christmas Stroll brings up to 3,000 shoppers to Sheridan. Sheridan’s historic downtown is the hub of the Christmas Stroll event and activities, but businesses throughout Sheridan County participate. Stroll activities include free photos with Santa and Mrs. Claus, make-your-own-ornaments, wagon rides, in-store specials, Christmas carolers, winning Stroll buttons and much more.
Each year Sheridan County students in Grades 1-6 submit designs for the Stroll button based on the Stroll theme. The winning design is featured on the buttons, and the Chamber and participating businesses sell the Stroll buttons. Starting the night of Stroll, and through Christmas Eve, Stroll button holders can check all participating businesses for the number that matches their Stroll button number. If found, the person with the winning button number receives a prize of at least a $50 value from the business.
Starting on Stroll day and the Saturdays following Stroll, Stroll Button holders can “Get Caught Shopping” locally. Secret “elves” try to “catch” Stroll button wearers shopping in Stroll-participating businesses prior to Christmas. Some lucky shoppers who get caught while wearing their buttons in participating stores may receive up to $100 in Chamber Bucks!
Proceeds from the Christmas Stroll go to the purchase of additional and replacement Christmas decorations for the Sheridan area.
