DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — If you take a look around the downtown area of Enterprise, you’ll notice the jolly cut-outs of business owners and Christmas decorations.

That’s because the Downtown Business Association and Main Street Enterprise are preparing to host their annual Whoville celebration.

One of the many stores to shop along Main Street is the Tots for Tweens which opened less than two months ago. The owner says it’s not all about the sales but the Whoville celebration is typically a top record day for businesses, which is a plus that it follows Black Friday and Small Business Saturday.

“We have toys, hair bows, accessories for boys and girls, and it’s just a great time for people to get that Christmas checklist done,” Owner Wendy Grimes said.

While you’re out enjoying the festivities and shopping for gifts, you may develop an appetite which is the perfect time to visit restaurants and take advantage of Enterprise being an entertainment district.

“We have brunch every Saturday from 10 to 2 we have fantastic chicken and waffles and we’re also known for eggs benedict. You’re able to take your adult beverages to go within the district,” Corks and Cattle Manager Leigha Clark said.

Last year the event was successful during a Covid-filled year and owners hope the community will keep supporting the City of Progress.

“We are anticipating 15,000 people this year,” Clark said.

“From all of us we want to create an experience for you that will be memorable and bring you back every year,” Grimes said.

The Whoville event will take place on Dec. 4 from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.
