ZANESVILLE – The chamber is setting up the display this week and next week they will be taking photos and videos of the Christmas expo so it can be posted on the web.

“As always, our community has been very supportive. We probably have about 75 percent of the entries that we had last year and we’re very happy and fortunate that the business community is that caring, so, we’re really excited,” Chamber President Dana Matz said.

There is a myriad of Christmas items to bid on from the festival.

“Generally, the entries come with an incentive. So, behind us, you can see trees, you cans see wreaths and stockings. So, with those, they may come with gift cards, they may come with a discount on a service, and a gift certificate and those kinds of things so its generally a combination of an entry and an incentive,” Matz said.

Starting next Wednesday, more information about the items will be available on WHIZ’s website.
