Manitou Springs wants you to visit this holiday season

Posted: Updated:
MANITOU SPRINGS -

The town of Manitou Springs is trimmed for the holiday season, only it is seeming a lot of people are late for the month long holiday celebration. "Small business Saturday was pretty good, but it could've been even more, and we'd really like to see people come over," said Jenny Butts with Whickerbill Gifts. The mountain town relies heavily on two retail seasons, summer and then the holidays.  

There is speculation the lull may be because of a few cone zones lingering from summer projects or possibly the weather is not feeling winterish.

"We do offer unique items,” said Butts, “We don't have any chains in the town."  The town is known for one of kind items.  "You'll find things here you won't find anywhere else,” said Holly Thorne with the clothing shop Piramide.

Then there is the experience. "It's really a fun, fun business,” said Stephen Lira with Goldminers Candy. The shop is known for making its own candy and offering samples.

Manitou residents are ready and want to share the season. There is a list of holiday events and extras Manitou has on the December calendar. The hope is it will energize more visitors. 

The KOAA News5 Team will be in Manitou Friday evening as they walk in the 'Christmas In Manitou' parade which starts at 6 p.m. We hope that you will be there to see a few of your favorite news personalities!
