It’s with sad hearts that we’re going to have to cancel Holiday Sip & Shop this year due to the winter storm coming tomorrow. The weather forecast hasn’t changed and there isn’t a date that works taking in bus, volunteer, merchant, and Mill Interpretive Center schedules—though we really tried! Lots of moving parts! We are truly bummed—but we will just have to do an extra fun one next year! Please be safe out there, stay warm, and come support our downtown merchants for the holidays when the ice melts!
If you had bought tickets, please check your email for options. Thank you.
HOLIDAY SIP & SHOP WILL FEATURE DOUBLE DECKER BUS RIDE AND TOUR OF NEW MILL INTERPRETIVE CENTER
The second annual Holiday Sip & Shop will provide a small town festive holiday experience in Downtown Camas. The Holiday Sip & Shop is a holiday after hours shopping, dining, and historic tour event on Thursday, December 8th from 4-9pm. A fundraiser for the Downtown Camas Association (DCA), this event will feature holiday shopping specials, specialty drinks, treats, caroling and entertainment, seasonal street lighting, and holiday cheer throughout town.
The evening also includes a ride on a double decker bus and a tour of the newly refurbished Mill Interpretive Center. The Interpretive Center was completed by Georgia Pacific in October and boasts an elaborate mill history timeline, videos, mill artifacts, and historic mill product in a quality industrial aesthetic. Local historian Virginia Warren will be on hand from 5-8pm to talk about the mill and what it has meant to our town. The double decker bus will make frequent loops through downtown and nearby neighborhoods and will share historic and fun facts about Camas and its homes and buildings as well as holiday music and complimentary refreshments.
Ticket price is $25 and includes the double decker bus ride, a free drink in a downtown location of your choice, Mill Interpretive Center tour, two tickets to enter holiday raffles of your choice, and a holiday passport. Merchants will each have a prize in their shops valued at over $100 that you can enter to win with the two included tickets. Also, for every 5 stamps in your passport, be entered to win an “Enjoy Downtown Camas” package including an overnight stay in the beautiful Camas Hotel, dinner for two, movie tickets at the historic Liberty Theatre, free coffee, free cupcakes, free bottle of olive oil of your choice, and more. You also receive tickets to enter to win with every $10 you spend downtown that evening.
The popular Washougal High School XET Carolers will be returning to provide holiday caroling throughout the town during the evening. Double Decker PDX, owned by Camas couple Minda and Kevin Coombs, is sponsoring this event and providing the double decker transportation for the tour. iQ Credit Union, a strong supporter of Downtown Camas events, is also a sponsor.
Tickets may be purchased at the event webpage at http://downtowncamas.com/events-and-festivals/holiday-sip-shop-2016/ . Pick up your tickets and passports at the DCA table at Arktana Shoes, 415 NE 4th, starting at 4:00pm that evening.
A charming way to experience the holidays!
