Celebrate Sheffield

Sheffield will host its third annual Celebrate Sheffield holiday event on Saturday. A variety of great deals, plenty of refreshments, special luncheon meals, an opportunity to win great prizes and a plethora of holiday spirit will be the elements of this good, old-fashioned holiday celebration. The public is invited.

From 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., event-goers can enjoy a variety of village-wide open houses, the chance to win $500 in Sheffield Bucks to be used at Sheffield businesses, horse-drawn wagon rides, holiday sales specials and a gift basket walk. Other events will include a Sheffield Public Library event, where there will be a children’s book reading time, refreshments and a book signing by Sheffield resident/Bureau County Republican and Illinois Valley Living Editor Terri Simon on her new book, “Grandma’s Cookie Jar.” The Sheffield Pride Arts Center will host free movie matinees with free popcorn; there will be activities at many of the churches; and the Sheffield Historical Society and historic Danish church will be open for tours. More information about the event can be found at local businesses or on the Celebrate Sheffield and the village of Sheffield Facebook pages.
