The Treasure Chest is offering a 20 percent discount storewide and Bruder Hill and Bruder Home are having select sales for various items.
In addition, Uncle Jon’s Soap has a 10 percent discount on Uncle Jon’s handmade products.
Throughout the week-long event, the Berlin Welcome Center has been giving away free shopping bags.
According to the Facebook event posting, some restaurants are having dining specials.
Carriage rides are also available downtown, weather permitting for both rain and heat.
All who click going or interested in the event on Facebook will be entered into a drawing to win $100 in Berlin Bucks! The drawing will be done at the Berlin Farmers Market on Sunday, but the winner does not have to be present.
