THANK YOU for supporting our past Festivals and joining us this year.... we hope you had fun! And please save the date for our 2019 celebration: Dec. 7!
Saturday, Dec. 8, 2018 10 am - 4 pm
Over the past several years, our ER Christmas Festival has become a favorite annual event for our community. This year's Festival will again be at two main locations: the Eyer Building (at Main and West Commercial) and the ER School campus (specifically, the 6-12 cafeteria). The Christmas Festival is sponsored by the Chamber of Commerce, with extensive assistance from the Town/Village of ER, the ER Alumni Foundation, the ER Association of Churches, the ER Rotary, and the ER School District. Our Festival provides visitors with activities such as music and caroling, children’s stories, food and item vendors, games and crafts for all ages, free transportation between the two sites and free horse-drawn wagon rides around Edmund Lyon Park, and visits with Santa and Mrs. Claus.

'Holiday Trail' 2018 raffles for ERHS scholarship fund: We're very proud and excited to again sponsor a 'Holiday Trail' series of raffles! Twenty-five local businesses have generously contributed prizes worth at least $100, and tickets ($1, or 12 for $10) are for sale through Friday, Dec. 14 from 8:30 am-4:30 pm at the Town/Village Clerk’s Office at the Eyer Building (317 Main St.), at the ER Christmas Festival (Saturday, Dec. 8), and at several of the participating businesses; or contact Doreen DiNardo at email@example.com. The list of participants and prizes is available at the link below; copies are also at the participating businesses. How does it work? Similar to a "Chinese auction," raffle participants visit the businesses to enter their ticket(s) for the prize(s) of their choice. Drawings will be held the week of Monday, Dec. 17. Best of all.... the proceeds go to the Chamber's scholarship for an ERHS senior! Thank you to all participants for your generosity and support -- we raised almost $740!
