Decorate Downtown Delaware!
With your help, Main Street Delaware hopes to decorate the city for the Christmas season with new banners, garland wraps, bows, and wreaths on the more than 90 lampposts that illuminate the historic downtown. Phase one of the process is almost complete! We have ordered our Christmas Lamp Post Banners, but there is still money to raise! We are 75% to our goal of $2,500 for the banners, help us finish it! Donations can be made online at www.mainstreetdelaware.com or mailed to: Main Street Delaware 20 E. Winter St., Delaware, OH 43015. Phase two and three are still to come! The cost for each garland wrap and bow – phase two of the Decorate Downtown Delaware campaign – is $54, with $5,000 in donations needed to complete the project. The cost for each wreath – phase three – is estimated at $200, with $18,000 in contributions needed to decorate the downtown.
Collectible Christmas Ornaments!

The ornaments are $20 each and will be available at First Fridays and Farmers’ Markets, the Main Street Delaware office, and downtown businesses including Coffeeology, The Greater Gouda, and Toujours.
