Christmas on Main Street!

Residents enjoyed a local downtown winter wonderland adventure!

 

by Sara Vogt - December 11, 2017

Wellsboro’s second annual Christmas on Main Street took place this past weekend! This time of stepping back into the 1940’s gave all who came an opportunity to discover the history of the Shiny Brites. During that period Wellsboro’s Corning Glass Plant became the glass Christmas ornament capital of the world. Everyone who came into town on Saturday had the opportunity to learn the history of the Shiny Brites with 24 locations displaying them. They could also choose to purchase a $5.00 Christmas on Main Street passport. That passport gave the owner the ability to visit the locations to have their passport stamped.

At the end of the day after having their passports stamped at least ten times, they were to turn them into any of the passport locations to be entered to win a prize. Passport prize winners were announced Sunday by Santa during the Penn Wells Hotel Brunch. Two of the winners were residents of Wellsboro, Cassandra Osgood, and Jacob Thurstin. The third winner was Paula Sheran of Rochester, New York. All three of the winners received baskets filled with gifts from area merchants.

Many who came also heard music filled with the joy of the season from the men’s chorus to the rousing dance band, Killarney Krew. Trolly Rides stopped at seven locations giving those onboard many choices as they viewed the map for the day’s events. There were tours of Highland Chocolate, shopping at Shabby Rue, Seniors Creations, Stained Glass Reflection, The Fifth Season, Peggy’s Candies, Garrisons Men’s Shop, Dunham’s Department Store, and In My Shoes to mention a few. Of course, there were many choices to choose from to dine such as The Steak House, Timeless Destination, The Penn Wells Hotel, and the Native Bagel.

There was also a 1940’s hat show featuring hats from the fall collection of Christine A. Moore Millinery of New York City. The show was held at the Penn Wells Hotel at 2:00 PM. Blake Seidel, husband and business partner of Christine Moore-Seidel narrated the hat history. The three models stepping back in time to wear the 40’s clothes and hats were Home Page staff members: Rhonda Pearson, Stacey Dondey and Megan Thomas. Some of the fall collection is currently available at Dunham’s for purchase!

From Friday to Sunday, each day was filled with different activities for the entire family. Some included the showing of “Home Alone” at the Arcadia Theatre on Saturday for one dollar! If you missed Wellsboro’s Second Annual Christmas on Main Street, don’t forget to mark your calendar for next year, December 7th through the 9th.
