Village of Barrington merchants are hard at work preparing for Light Up the Night, a festive “Girls Night Out” shopping experience featuring special in-store events PLUS the Village of Barrington’s first-ever Window Lights Decorating Contest to kick off the holiday season! It’s all coming up from 4 to 8 p.m. this Thursday, November 16th.
Light Up the Night is a great chance to discover those unique, one-of-a-kind gifts from local merchants while enjoying a night of promotions and holiday cheer. The event will also include luminaries to light your way throughout town and a Girls’ Night Out sweepstakes to win one of ten $50 gift cards to local retailers.
Throughout the holidays, most stores will stay open late on Thursdays and will also be open Sundays from 11:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. to help make holiday gift-buying more convenient for busy shoppers. To vote for your favorite Village of Barrington holiday storefronts, visit Barrington-il.gov/windows starting on November 16th.
During the event, shoppers will also have the chance to participate in “Candy Canes for Hurricanes” with a free candy cane for anyone who makes a donation to the Barrington Regional Hurricane Relief Effort. Throughout the season shoppers are encouraged to donate $1 or more to hurricane relief at any participating Barrington business. Donations will support nonprofit BUILD TEAM’s plans to send volunteers to Harris County, Texas (Houston area) in November and March to rebuild homes. Find out more at BRHRelief.org.
