12 Stops of Christmas

Tackle your gift list with Castle Rock’s 12 Stops of Christmas

The biggest shopping season of the year starts this week. With Castle Rock’s 12 Stops of Christmas, you can shop locally to find those special gifts, and you might even win a little something for yourself.

Back for the second year, Castle Rock’s Season of the Star is the community’s premier holiday event series. This year, it’s presented by the Promenade at Castle Rock. The six-event series kicks off Saturday, Nov. 26, with the 12 Stops of Christmas.

Here’s how it works:

  • Pick up your 12 Stops passport at Festival Park’s North Pole Welcome Center starting at 2 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 26. (Or print it online).
  • Then, visit the businesses on the list. With a purchase of $5 or more, you’ll get a stamp from the business. (Hint: you’re also giving to your community by helping the local economy.)
  • Once you get 12 stamps, return it to the North Pole Welcome Center where you’ll be entered to win a prize worth more than $300. The deadline to enter is Dec. 31.
