Our annual celebration of the holiday season begins this year with a Merchants' Open House on Friday, the 3rd, from 5 to 7 PM. Visit the participating merchants, listed on the downloadable pdf poster to the right, and enter to win great prizes including the GRAND PRIZE of $125.00 worth of Wallace Script. Meet upstairs at the Jameson at 7:30 PM when we will start drawing our winners. Hot beverages and appetizers will be available. Wallace Script may be used in any participating store in downtown Wallace. Change will not be given, however.

Also happening on this First Friday in December is a "Literary Tea and Wine Tasting Party" at Valley Vintage, 4:00 to 7:00 PM. Meet Fred Scott, author of Reflections from the Golden Age of Hunting, and hear his hunting tales.

In 2001, however, it was too warm, yet the soggy high school band still played on. The 2000 tree contest and the 2001 Little Miss Snowflake competition are also pictured, thanks to Debbie Angle.
