From the Director...

As we approach the holiday shopping season, I want to encourage businesses to let me know of any special holiday hours.


Several shop owners have been staying open later and open on Sunday and they have reported great success.


I'm excited for the holiday season in Burnsville, and can't wait to dress up downtown for Christmas.
