We read the other day that the big-box stores are already beginning their promotions for the holiday season. So, we suppose it’s OK to talk about the bright holiday season that Covington is going to experience this year.
Thanks to the efforts of the Main Street program and the city of Covington, the town square is going to be brighter than ever. And the next year will be brighter still.
The square will become a winter wonderland with new lights and decorations. That effort will no doubt bring more visitors to town to enjoy the holiday spirit, and those visitors can be expected to stop and do some shopping. This will benefit not only merchants on the square, but also the whole community.
With all this holiday excitement, old St. Nick has agreed to spend more time in Covington this year. In fact, he plans to spend time on the square every Saturday during the Christmas season.
This should ensure that parents will bring their children downtown — another great boost for local merchants.
Santa didn’t say if he would bring his reindeer. We will just have to wait and see.
