This Christmas season, the Portales MainStreet Program is featuring the Portales Christmas Crawl to promote local shopping, according to a news release from the organization.

Participants can win gift certificates and products from local merchants.

People interested have from Friday to Dec. 11 to get a promotional booklet with instructions from a participating business or other designated location, visit at least 15 of the 19 businesses and get a stamp, and turn in the completed form.
