It's a man-made blizzard with hundreds of snowballs gently floating down to waiting shoppers.
The snowballs, which are actually ping pong balls, will be fired high into the air from a “snowball cannon”. Each snowball displays a main street business name/address and ball number. The discount or give-away is determined by the participating business. 
Gather on the Gazebo at 2nd & "F" Street to catch the snowballs as they rain down, but remember…don’t be late, the blizzard starts at 11:30 a.m. sharp. This is a free family event. What a great way to start your holiday shopping at a variety of unique locally owned small businesses in Downtown and Old Town Eureka.
Santa Claus will be at the Gazebo and roaming the area searching out good girls & boys (bring your camera for photos)!

Happy holidays from the businesses of Eureka Main Street!
