Local artists are hitting the streets to create holiday window scenes for Destination Barrington's Holiday Windows campaign. Starting this week, you will see mischievous elves beginning to appear on windows throughout town.

From Nov. 26 through Dec. 31, residents and visitors can follow the elves throughout Barrington to view merchant windows participating in a villagewide Holiday Windows campaign. The annual theme for the holiday season is "Just Elfing Around Barrington!"

 

Windows will include festive décor, holiday lights and elves in all sorts of mischief on their windows.

Local artists from the Barrington Area Artists Association and Kaleidoscope School of Fine Art, as well as student artists from Barrington High School, will team up with multiple merchants to create holiday scenes the entire family can enjoy. The program is coordinated by the Barrington Area Chamber of Commerce.

"Make Barrington your family destination for some holiday cheer this season," BACC President/CEO Suzanne Corr stated in a news release. "The holiday windows will offer a great family outing. Come shop, stroll and be merry."

Visitors to downtown Barrington are encouraged to post an "Elfie" (a selfie with an elf) from their visit and tag the BACC Facebook and Instagram pages for a chance to win a local shopping spree.

BACC will host an official ribbon cutting ceremony in downtown Barrington at 3:30 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 1, to officially kick off the holiday season and the Destination Barrington Holiday Windows Campaign. The event will include a performance by the Barrington High School Madrigals.

In addition to the "Just Elfing Around Barrington" holiday windows, the Village of Barrington will host Barrington's Holiday Festival & Tree Lighting Ceremony from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 4.
