Where do I get my coins to vote?

You will be able to pick up your bag of coins and a map at Style Me Mananyunk at The Nickels Building from 11 AM to 6 PM! There is no cost for these, or the event!

Where do I vote?

The businesses on Main Street will place jars near their Christmas trees, so placing your coin in this jar will count as one vote for the tree.

When can I vote?

This year, we have made a change so that you have the option to go off on your own to view the trees at your own pace throughout the day. If you would rather go with a group, you can join us on a guided tour beginning at 4 PM from The Nickels Building!
