Meet MainStreet Marvin

Meet MainStreet Marvin
By Jennifer Johnson, MainStreet Libertyville Volunteer

You’ll find him climbing about holiday decorations or making mischief among the merchandise. But no one scolds him. In fact, local merchants herald his arrival. Who is he? He’s MainStreet Marvin, of course — MainStreet Libertyville’s very own miniature elf.

MainStreet Marvin will be charming shoppers and diners alike through December 19th as he ventures about downtown Libertyville. When you spot him, snap a selfie with him and email your photo, a note about where you found him as well as your contact information to to be entered into a raffle drawing to win a $50 Mainstreet Libertyville Gift Certificate. The winner will be announced on December 21st.

Exclusive hints to find where MainStreet Marvin is hanging out are posted on the MainStreet Libertyville Facebook page and in the weekly MainStreet Libertyville newsletter. Check back often – you never know what day MainStreet Marvin will be “on the move.”

Visit downtown Libertyville for all your holiday gifting occasions and top off your visit by sampling one of downtown Libertyville’s cafes or restaurants. From casual to upscale, there are so many exciting options to choose from. Free covered parking is available in the Church or Lake Street parking garages. For a list of promotions and special
