Prairie du Chien’s downtown business community is hosting a holiday shopping event they hope will get people moving from door to door. On Saturday, Nov. 18, from noon to 7 p.m., the first Mingle and Jingle shopping promotion will involve fun-filled events, specials, giveaways and other festivities. This is intended to get customers into the many downtown storefronts as possible so they can see what there is to offer.

Shoppers will stop at their first business for a sheet of paper to take with them to be initialed at each business place. These initials will count toward a raffle ticket for a grand prize drawing done at the end of the day.

Customers will receive one entry per business where they stop. They will also receive an entry for every $10 they spend at a retail store. Other non-retail businesses will have specials, such as one entry per drink purchased, for those participating at their establishment.

To find participating businesses, look for the red Santa in the window. They include RadioShack, Nelson True Value, Mississippi Meats, The Local Oven, Panka Shoe Store, JC Party Store, Jim’s Bar, Wall Street, Ideal Decorating, The Pickett Fence, Sports World, Stark’s Sport Shop, The Broken Ladder, The Planted Tree, Muddy Waters Pizza Kemble’s Greenhouse.

At the end of each shopper’s day, completed sheets should be turned in to Jim’s Bar, by 6 p.m.

In addition to the above businesses, PdC Main Street and the Prairie du Chien Area Chamber of Commerce are helping sponsor this event.
