Ladies Opening Night

Holiday shopping season is starting off with a bang! Ladies, while your husbands ready for deer camp, come Downtown Petoskey on Friday, November 10th to create your ultimate holiday wish list! Join us afterwards for a Doe Camp at Stafford’s Perry Hotel to win prizes off the buck pole! Doe Camp doors open at 8:30 p.m. and prize drawings start at 9 p.m.

From 5 to 8:30 p.m., start your evening off in any of the participating stores, and from there grab a wish list and start hunting! While you set your sights on your ultimate holiday wish list, enjoy games, gifts, and nibbles throughout the participating stores. Show your completed wish list at Doe Camp in order to register for the prize drawings off the buck pole. You can win gift certificates to Downtown stores just in time for your hunter to fulfill your holiday wishes!

The tradition of hunting and deer camp is one that pulls together the threads of tradition, camaraderie, and a good time. It is Downtown Petoskey’s hope that the first Friday of hunting season will be the start of a similar tradition for those ladies who would rather hunt for bags over bucks.
