Holiday Happenings

Impress your favorite people with the unique selection of gifts, services and experiences available at our distinctive and locally owned shops, restaurants and hotels this holiday season. The Greater Downtown Council's Christmas City of the North Holiday gift guide is the manual for joyful gift-giving this holiday season.

Listen to KOOL 101.7 December 9th through the 20th for daily give a-ways and extensive gift giving ideas. The locally owned businesses featured in the Christmas City of the North gift guide have all selected beautiful items to be given away, just in time for Holiday gift giving or as a gift for yourself. Take in the breathtaking color and lights this holiday season, and then listen to KOOL 101.7 to win.
