Marble Falls retailers brewing up deals for Moonlight Madness shopping


MARBLE FALLS — The holiday shopping season gets a jump start Oct. 24 during the annual Moonlight Madness.

The event sponsored by The Picayune, KBEY 103.9 FM Radio Picayune and the Marble Falls/Lake LBJ Chamber of Commerce rolls spook-tacular sales and fun throughout the day. Many local businesses and retail stores are offering special deals during the event.

And for people looking to scare up a few more deals, many of the participating businesses stay open late allowing shoppers to “haunt” the aisles while on the lookout for just the right bargain.

This is a truly shop-at-home affair. The idea behind the event is to encourage residents to check out the hometown stores and retail outlets in preparation for the upcoming holiday shopping season.

The event ties in with Halloween in that organizers are encouraging participating businesses to have their staffs dress up in costumes. People stopping by The Picayune and KBEY offices will find the folks dressed up in a circus theme.

As with previous years, judges will head out to participating businesses and bestow honors upon the best-costumed players.

There will be other activities to encourage people to get out and take advantage of Moonlight Madness and explore the hometown shopping opportunities.

A full list of participating businesses will be included in the Oct. 23 edition of The Picayune. Businesses interested in participating in Moonlight Madness should call Mandi Wyatt or Cindi Ashford at (830) 693-7152.
