12 Days of Christmas

Celebrating the countdown to Christmas, the Downtown Windsor BIA presents innovative digital content designed to spread festive cheer and attract new patrons to the city centre, just in time for the holidays.

The 12 Days of Christmas is a series of video vignettes that attracts patrons to the downtown core and encourages them to #ShopLocal this holiday. The vignettes include Santa in the City – a wide range of online activities/special offers such as video vignettes featuring downtown shopping; virtual arts/crafts workshops; and partnerships with the Art Gallery of Windsor, Windsor Public Library, and local artists/artisans.
