With the holiday season approaching fast, the annual Downtown Holiday Open House will bring joy, excitement and cheer to downtown Rome on November 20-21, and local businesses are encouraged to participate. Downtown Open House Hours are from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Friday and from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday.
The two-day event sponsored by the Office of Downtown Development will encompass the traditional nostalgia of the holidays in the beautiful main street setting of Broad Street. Along with downtown shopping, locals can enjoy free trolley rides with Santa and Mrs. Clause on Saturday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Also on Saturday, children ages 10 and younger can experience the magic of the Downtown Candy Cane Hunt at 1 p.m. at the Town Green presented by the Rome-Floyd Parks and Recreation Department.
