As an enticement to holiday shoppers, many downtown retail shops will be participating in the Shop and Win! promotion. Shop and Win! Begins on Saturday, December 3 and will end on Sunday, December 18. For every $25 you spend at a participating downtown Cambridge shop, you’ll receive an entry form that makes you eligible to win gift certificates or other prizes from local businesses. Completed tickets will be entered into prize drawings held during the two-week period. Winners will be notified after each drawing; you do not need to be in attendance to win. The grand prize drawing will be December 19.
Other Second Saturday happenings include: extended hours at Blackwater Bakery, a “meet the author” event at the Harriet Tubman Museum and Educational Center, a holiday market in the Blue Ruin Parking lot, Jazz at the Mural at Heirloom Athletics, and The Merry Market Second Saturday Reception at the Dorchester Center for the Arts.
