Hermann’s annual Cookie Walk Dec. 18 will give visitors a chance to stroll through the downtown area collecting cookies from the various local businesses. The Hermann Area Chamber of Commerce organizes the event.

Each participant is given a festive holiday bag to collect the cookies and a ticket to be stamped at each location.

The shops prepare and label bundles with two cookies each. At the end of their trek, participants can return their tickets for a chance to win a door prize.

In the past, this event has also been an opportunity for families to do last-minute Christmas shopping at local shops.

Melissa Lensing, the executive director of Hermann Area Chamber of Commerce, said the event usually sells out — 200 tickets in 2018 and 300 tickets in 2019.

Cookie Walk bags are available for $20. The bags and tickets can be picked up on the day of the event at the city’s Welcome Center.

To buy a ticket and secure a bag, call Hermann’s Welcome Center at 800-932-8687.
