Main Street Chippewa Falls kicks off the holidays in downtown Chippewa Falls with a Christmas Sweepstakes – winners get $500 in gift certificates – and a walking tour of 50 retailers to encourage locals to think, shop, and buy local. Santa is top of mind. Kiddos can get a photo with a seven-foot tall St. Nick at the Main Street Chippewa Falls office, 514 N. Bridge St. On Facebook and YouTube, Santa and Ms. Claus will talk to viewers, share baking and crafts, and read The Night Before Christmas on Dec. 24. Main Street Chippewa Falls is also continuing its popular Santa letters. For details, visit or
