When you're out and about this time of year, you'll likely see most spots decked out for the holidays. Downtown Traverse City is one of those places ready to celebrate.

Shops, restaurants, and the streets are all decorated.

Friday, Santa will arrive, and downtown will be packed with people ready to ring in the season.

The DDA says this is also the busiest time for their gift certificates, they can be used at any merchant downtown. Last year, they sold more than $315,000 of them.
