Small Business SaturdayShop and gift locally! Small Business Saturday is a time to focus on the small businesses of our communities throughout the United States. Downtown Mesquite will once again be one of the Small Business Saturday neighborhoods, and we're celebrating with free #ShopSmall tote bags while supplies last as well as specials, demos and more at participating businesses. Begin your day with a visit to the Welcome Center (open 10 a.m. till 2 p.m.) at 214 W. Davis St., and get a map of participating businesses. Then, enjoy your day by visiting our locally owned businesses - and be sure to treat yourself to a coffee at Bear Cave Coffee or a meal at one of our restaurants.

Christmas on the Square

Tuesday, Dec. 3, 2019

Heritage Square, 223 W. Davis St.

Christmas family

It's the event all kids and kids at heart are waiting for: the lighting of the community Christmas tree in the historic heart of Mesquite. Enjoy free cocoa and cookies, and take in dancing and music prior to the arrival of the Jolly Old Elf himself, who will join us in lighting the Christmas tree and then taking the time to visit with the kids. Free Downtown Mesquite Christmas ornaments will be available while supplies last.

The fun isn't over when the tree is lit; it's just begun! Be sure to take photos in front of our Elfie Selfie Stations posted throughout the downtown area, and stroll the area to marvel at the beautifully decorated business windows for our Window Wonderland decor contest. Both of these opportunities will continue throughout the season.

Carols and Cocoa

CarolesThis new Downtown Mesquite event promises all of the fun and charm of a Hometown Holidays celebration. Join your family and friends at Heritage Square. Get there early to get a free Downtown Mesquite cocoa mug while supplies last! Everyone will be treated to free cocoa, and we'll all have song sheets to be able to sing Christmas carols together. You'll have a chance to vote for People's Choice for the Window Wonderland window decor contest, and and we'll announce those winners at this event. After the singing is done, bundle up and settle in for a fun family movie outdoors on the square. And, while you're at it, take the opportunity to take an Elfie Selfie at one of our selfie stations available in the downtown area!
