In 2010, as an effort to support local shops that make our communities strong, American Express launched Small Business Saturday® on the Saturday after Thanksgiving to encourage people to Shop Small and bring more holiday shopping to small businesses. Since 2013, the Skagway Development Corporation has championed Skagway in this nation-wide event in an effort to increase winter business in Skagway and supporting local business owners.

Winter Wonder Walk
Yuletide is a magical time of the year here in Skagway. To help brighten the holidays, bring fellowship within the community and a lot of cheer, SDC will be championing a Winter Wonder Walk for the first time. With the help of the community we hope to Deck the Halls, or rather the parks around City Hall and we are asking for the community's help! Do you have any extra LED Christmas lights to spare? Some extra time to decorate a tree or two? Maybe you would like to 'Sponsor a Spot' by donating money for SDC to buy light strings, extension cords and other needs tools? Or perhaps you would like to contribute funds to help with electricity or to help SDC reach the goal of purchasing one or two big fancy commercial light displays? No help with this project is too small. If we get enough donated, we hope to make a walk (or Drive) that goes from the Train Park North of City Hall, around Veterans Park and to Mollie Walsh (maps to come soon).
We hope that each year we can see this event grow and become a winter attraction for Skagway. But to kick it off, we need your help, to please select which type of help you can provide. And if you can't, we understand, we hope this event with be enjoyed by all.
