Veteran’s Day: Please note that the Holiday Extravaganza falls on Veteran’s Day, so banks will be closed. Please arrange your banking needs prior to that Monday.
Shopping: There will be 20+ vendors that evening showcasing their holiday items. Various deals, contests, and other opportunities for discounts and gift certificates will be available throughout the evening.
Piccadilly Auction: Make sure to bring plenty of quarters with you to the Holiday Extravaganza, because the Piccadilly Auction items are valued in quarters. When you enter the building that evening you will receive an auction paddle. Every table setting will have a placemat, and on the backside of that placemat is the auction bill with all the items available that evening with their auction value. When the auction begins these rules will be reviewed. When an item goes up for auction, the item will be held up and walked around the room. If you would like to bid on the item, place the auction item’s value into the container at your table ($0.25, $0.50, $0.75, etc.) and raise up your paddle. The auctioneer will then generate a random number on the projector screen. If you put in a bid on the item, your paddle is up in the air, and the number that was generated is the same as your auction paddle, you win the item!
Donations: The Piccadilly Auction is made possible by the generosity of area businesses. The auction is a great marketing opportunity for your business, and another way to show support to the community. If you’re interested in donating an item, please contact the Red Oak Chamber office and we’ll help you get listed. Suggested value for donations are $25+, and please make sure to add a business card with your item. Your business will be recognized during the auction when your item goes on display. The funds generated by the auction goes towards the Red Oak Chamber holiday kickoff events and the holiday downtown decoration efforts.
