First Friday art walks generally take place during the summer time. But some business owners and residents thought it would be a nice idea to encourage folks to buy local if they held one in December. Stores stayed open, displayed a lot of local artistic talent, provided goodies and fellowship to those who stopped in. 2012 Iditarod Sled Dog Race winner Dallas Seavey signed his new book ‘Born to Mush’ at Cover to Cover Bookstore, and Amy Mow brought her chocolate fountain and some sweet dipping items. Santa visited each business that was open, and Luke Rosier played his guitar and sang for customers at the Ranting Raven Bakery & Cafe. Saturday, December 8th, was tax break day, where local sales taxes were waived for local shoppers.
