The annual Shop Around the Square returned to Edmonton on Sunday, December 5th and you could feel the Christmas spirit in the air.
The event is sponsored by the Edmonton Metcalfe Chamber of Commerce each year to encourage shopping local.
Relay for Life held their Tree of Hope ceremony and several businesses around the square were open. Grace Union Baptist Church members sang Christmas Carols, Santa was on hand to greet the children, the Hornets’ Nest Pickers provided music, hot cider, cookies, and a tree lighting all in one day. What more could you ask for?
The Metcalfe Museum in the historic courthouse was also open to the public and windows were decorated.
