COLORADO SPRINGS -

After large crowds around the area for Black Friday, small businesses in the area are gearing up for a day of traffic.

'Small Business Saturday' started in 2010 by American Express in an effort to support local economies. 

This year, several local shopping areas are offering incentives to those shopping in the area.

In Colorado Springs, free coupon books will be available in Acacia Park for shoppers. 

In Old Colorado City, shoppers will be treated to some entertainment as they walk around businesses in the area.

The entertainment includes carolers, and the annual Christmas stroll featuring characters such as Elvis. 

Some of the entertainment will also be around Sunday.
