La Crescent Christmas Decorating Contest

Each year, the Chamber recognizes those homes and businesses that show their holiday spirit by decorating the exterior of their building.  The “Share the Spirit” award will go to a home or business that best displays the overall look of the Christmas season (quality not necessarily quantity).  Judging will be on December 17th.  The winner will be notified by the La Crescent Chamber of Commerce and will be announced in the Houston County News. 

Letters to Santa
Now - December 15th

Christmas is a special time of year for a child. A letter from Santa is a cherished memory. We understand that in this busy world, it may be difficult to find time to mail a letter to Santa. To help, the La Crescent Chamber of Commerce is offering a way for parents to submit their children's requests for a letter from Santa Claus. By giving Santa some additional information about your children, he can send a letter that specifically responds to the child's interest and hobbies. Please note: Santa does not make promises for what presents a child will receive at Christmas. His elves work until Christmas Eve makin presents so Santa may not know what present they will be receiving when he responds.
