With one week left until Christmas, the Congaree Vista Guild has planned a night of last-minute shopping and festive downtown cheer.
Vista Nights, held the third Thursday of each month, will feature holiday music and special retail offers for its December event, held Thursday from 5-8 p.m.
The Carillon Carolers, a Victorian-era quartet who perform in period costume and sing a capella, will perform holiday music on the streets throughout the Vista while visitors shop and dine throughout the evening.
Some of the special sales and events offered by area retailers include:
Other stores are offering discounts, gift certificates and plenty of unique gifts for everyone on your list.
The Congaree Vista Guild, a nonprofit, membership-based organization made up of a wide variety of restaurant, shop, business and gallery owners, homeowners and museums in the Vista, hosts its monthly Vista Nights to offer later shopping hours at its most popular galleries and retailers on a night when visitors already frequent the neighborhood’s restaurants and bars.
Vista Nights are free and open to the public.
Parking is available in the Vista’s parking garages at 820 Washington Street and at the corner of Senate and Pendleton Streets behind the Hilton.
