More than 10 Philadelphia businesses are expected to participate in Sunday's Holiday Open House.

Stores will be open from 1 to 5 p.m. offering a wide variety of holiday gift ideas.

What's more, shoppers can register for special cash give-aways.

Main Street Director Tim Moore encouraged Philadelphia residents to shop downtown for the holidays starting on Sunday.

"Please come kick off your holidays shopping downtown on Sunday," Moore said. "We have everything that you need. You can drive a little and safe a lot."

Moore said a new event for holiday shoppers in Philadelphia is "Ham Jam Bucks."

Using proceeds from Ham Jam, there will be four drawings for $260 each to be spent downtown, Moore said.

Registration boxes are already located at the various downtown merchants.

"Enter as much as you want," Moore said.

Drawings will be held on Nov. 11 and Dec. 2, 13 and 20.
