As always, please be sure to support our local merchants. They put in a lot of time, effort and energy into providing us all with the best food and merchandise available. They keep their shops and restaurants open late that night, many of them offer live entertainment and they go all-out to decorate and really make this event … well … Sparkle! Sparkle would be nothing without them and we appreciate all they do.
