In an effort to spread holiday cheer and support Kilmarnock businesses, the Town of Kilmarnock announces the 12 Days of Kilmarnock Christmas. From December 7 – December 18 shoppers are encouraged to shift their holiday spending by making purchases in town. 

The 12 Days of Kilmarnock Christmas will feature 12 easy tasks to complete that will support the local business community. Simply take a picture completing each task and submit that picture to the Town of Kilmarnock Facebook Page. Each day you submit, your name will go into a drawing for a prize. The more days you complete, the greater chances you have to win.

All entries must be submitted by Friday, December 18 and winners will be announced Monday, December 21. Winners must pick up their prizes at the Kilmarnock Town Hall.

“The goal of the 12 Days of Kilmarnock Christmas is to encourage people to shop in Kilmarnock and support our businesses. If there was ever a time to support our local business community and do your holiday shopping in town, this is the year,” said Chad Thomas, Economic Development & Tourism Coordinator.”
