Family-friendly daytime event happens on November 27th
South Cape businesses are getting in the holiday spirit, gearing up for kids to visit participating locations in their pajamas!
The South Cape Business Gift-or-Treat will take place from 10 am to 2 pm on Saturday, November 27th. Hosted by the South Cape Hospitality & Entertainment Association (SCHEA), this free event was created to provide a fun and safe way for kids to kick off the holiday season.
“The event gives families the opportunity to scope out South Cape in holiday attire and pajamas while visiting participating locations,” says SCHEA Board Member, Alison Polo.
“As we all know, shipping delays have become normal. Our goal is to build awareness of local businesses. Why not shop local this holiday season, and future seasons?”
More than 15 businesses have pledged to be open, handing out gifts, candy & trinkets to children dressed for the occasion. There will also be larger gift giveaways and gift cards for the parents.
SCHEA will be providing transportation via limo bus, sponsored by Zak’s Jewelry.
There will be a photo booth with Santa hosted at South Cape Hub (909 SE 47th Terrace, #105). Parents can visit the SCHEA Facebook Event for full details, including a Google Map of all participating locations.
“On the day of the event, businesses will have designated event signage, so it will be easy to spot who is participating,” explains Polo.
The South Cape Business Gift-or-Treat is just one of the daytime events SCHEA runs during the fall. The organization also hosts the annual Easter Egg Hunt, Trick-or-Treat & Halloween Fall Festival.
“South Cape has a lot to offer,” says Polo. “Most of the hundreds of businesses here are locally owned and help build the local economy.”
