The Ridgway-Elk County Chamber of Commerce will be hosting their sixth annual Holiday Cheer Tour this Friday from 5-9 p.m. providing the perfect opportunity for patrons to visit downtown retailers while enjoying a festive sampling of holiday spirits and hors d'oeuvres.
Mary Kucenski, Ridgway-Elk County Chamber of Commerce administrative assistant is expecting a strong turnout. This year's tour has expanded from years past and will extend as far as the West End Grocery along Oak Street to Today's Carpet & Furniture along North Broad Street.
Kucenski said more retailers are involved this year than ever.
Last year's event drew 132 patrons from Ridgway and neighboring communities.
"We are expecting somewhere close to that this year," Kucenski said. "We have had a ton of phone calls and Facebook messages in the past couple days asking where to get tickets."
