Hamilton for the Holidays is here!


The Hamilton Business Alliance and friends have been busy putting together socially distanced activities that you and your family can enjoy this season.

We want to start by reminding you that small businesses are a cornerstone of our community and it’s crucial to support them at this time. This holiday season, utilize delivery and pickup options and choose local businesses over online shopping or big box stores. Stay safe, stay local!

Here is what is in store!

Now through Thursday, December 3rd:
Guess the time of the tree lighting and you may win a $20 Maxwell’s gift certificate! Enter at the Hamilton Public Library.

Saturday, November 28th: Small Business Saturday! Treat loved ones to gifts or gift certificates from local businesses and enjoy free hot cocoa at the Colgate Inn from 2 to 3 pm.

Friday, December 4th at 6:15 pm: Santa Claus is coming to town! Stand outside your home or pause while you’re shopping in town and watch as Santa drives by in his convertible! Please remain socially distanced. See the route in the attached photo, beginning at the Village municipal lot and ending at the Colgate Bookstore.

All season long: We encourage community members to help us light up the holiday season by decorating their homes and businesses and adding festive cheer to our area.

Happy holidays! While we’ll miss hosting our regular events, we hope these will still bring your family a little joy during this difficult year.
