While many people are still trying to put together their Halloween costumes, the In Ballard Merchants Association is already gearing up for the holidays. After a summer-long “Tuesdays in Ballard” blitz, the group is planning a “Holidays in Ballard” campaign to run from November 16th to January 4th. There is a kick-off meeting planned for this Tuesday October 6th.
“We will discuss our plans for the upcoming season,” says Laura Buzard of Laura Bee Designs and secretary of the association. “So far these include festive decorations, a PR and ad campaign, and exciting holiday-related events to make Ballard the go-to shopping district this winter.” The meeting will be held at the Ballard Community Center at 7 p.m.
