Chuck Arnold is the Executive Director of the Downtown Bend Business Association.
 
"THIS STARTED IN DowntownS MUCH LIKE DOWNTOWN BEND - AND THIS IS ACTUALLY our BIGGEST YEAR EVER. Many stores are SERVING HOT CHOCOLATE AND FUN DRINKS and have special sales and events, some have musicians.  It's almost like a First Friday artwalk atmosphere, and i think people will enjoy it.

He says they have a special campaign for holiday shopping that gives back to local non-profit group who continue to strugging in this economy.  Arnold  also says they are also getting ready for two very popular events next week, the Christmas Tree lighting on Friday and the Christmas Parade on Saturday.
