The annual Trinidad shop local holiday promotion campaign is designed to assist retail merchants, restaurants, non-profits, service groups and churches through the service of promoting any events, shopping in-store or online and any fun happenings over the holiday season in Trinidad-area via print, radio, and the Historic Trinidad Main Street Board Facebook page.

Said the board, “This holiday season the downtown businesses that enter the ‘Deck the Halls’ decorating contest will be competing for six prizes of $1,000. Also, all who vote on the decorated business on the Trinidad Historic Main Street Facebook page will be entered into a drawing for more prizes.”
