Manchester Main Street announces holiday gala

Mark your calendars for North Manchester’s most memorable night out on the town. Manchester Main Street’s 2nd annual “Light up the Town” Holiday Gala will be held on Friday, Dec. 6, from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m.

This progressive dinner event will feature specialty treats from North Manchester’s finest restaurants, bars and entertainers. Four historic downtown venues will be transformed into holiday splendor, and filled with live music, dancing and silent auction treasures.

Attendance is limited for this exclusive event, so be sure to reserve a space now. Discounted “early bird” tickets will be available through Nov. 1. The registration deadline is Nov. 15.

The night begins in elegance, with hors d’oeuvres, cocktails, late Victorian period décor and musical accents, at the stately Lawrence House/Bender Chapel. Take a stroll down Main Street’s new historic streetscape to Zook’s and Brewhouse’s upbeat, rustic cozy atmosphere.

Visit with friends and enjoy white linen fine dining, delicious entrees and complementary beverages. Then, head over to the Center for History for luscious desserts, choice liqueurs and infectious dancing.

Savor memories new and old, and, be sure to indulge in your chance to win rare silent auction finds. This unique evening of refinement and fun in celebration of Manchester Main Street’s 2013 accomplishments promises to be one party you won’t want to miss.

Tickets are available at the Manchester Main Street office in the Chamber building, located at 109 N. Market Street, Manchester, or online at
