Three reasons to head to Lindsborg for "It's a Wonderful Life!"

Three reasons to go
1. Businesses will open at 9 a.m. and stay open until 6 p.m. Several will offer in-store drawings, refreshments and live music while patrons shop for holiday gifts found only in Lindsborg.

2. Merchants have donated gift certificates for a $500 shopping spree. Pick up a "Holiday Merchants Hop" brochure at any participating store and fill it up for your chance to win. Children may register at Lindsborg Hardware to win a free bike.

3. There will be an inaugural chili cook-off from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Bank of America parking lot. Teams and individuals of chili-making Lindsborgians will compete to see who has the best chili in town. The "chili chef" with the most tickets wins bragging rights for this year's cook-off. All proceeds from the chili cook-off will be donated to the Bethany College Alternative Gift Market.

Why you should attend:
“We welcome you to attend for the chance to win $500 in Lindsborg gift certificates and experience Lindsborg in a new season.”

Lindsborg ad-hoc member
