The Hillsboro Business Association’s annual Christmas carnival at the Hillsboro city armory could take on a different shape next winter.

HBA President Melissa Beach asked HBA members on Wednesday to consider revamping the holiday event.

Beach suggested merchants give thought to scrapping the carnival in favor of an event that promotes downtown shopping and keeps activities for kids.

“Right now, the carnival is a great community event and it goes over really well,” Beach said. “But are families getting burnt out on it?

“Maybe we could do something a little bit different to freshen up things this year.”
