Holiday Open House
The Uptown Holiday Open House is a major event for Uptown merchants that “kicks-off” the holiday season for the entire community. Merchants decorate their stores and shop windows and reorganize their merchandise in preparation for the holiday shopping season. The Uptown Greenwood Development Corporation, The City of Greenwood, and Greenwood CPW coordinate putting up Christmas lights and decorations throughout the Uptown area for a festive atmosphere. This is the perfect time to find that unique, one of a kind holiday ornament or home decor item, and wrap up your holiday shopping!
