Downtown Staunton’s annual Champagne & Chocolates event has been changed this year to a new format. It’s called Sparkles & Sweets, and it’s coming up in just two weeks. This is an opportunity for us, the downtown merchants, to treat you, our customers, like the stars you are.
Come downtown Friday, November 2 for free (nonalcoholic) sparkling beverages and chocolate treats at dozens of participating stores and restaurants. There will also be a bandstand on Beverley Street, in front of the Beverley Street Studio School, with live swing and big-band kinds of tunes so you can dance the night away. Pufferbellies will be open until at least 9pm (probably later, if last year is any indication), and since this is an alcohol-free event it’s very kid-friendly. On the other hand, it’s also a fun and festive kick-off to the holiday season and a good time to get some shopping in, so you might want to leave the kiddos at home. Either way, we hope to see you then!
