For two evenings, December 5 and 6, our downtown shops open their doors late with goodies and treats, while the entire town turns out for the kind of holiday cheer and goodwill that keeps the hearth fires burning ‘til spring. The Stroll starts at 6pm with the increasingly popular Blade Parade (who knew there were so many ways to decorate a snowplow?) Also on Friday there will be a lantern stroll down Broadway just before the blade parade at 6:00.

Stores stay open until around 9pm. So bundle up the kids and bring your holiday shopping list. It’s a perfect recipe for enjoying the holiday season: Ski, Stroll, & Stay the night.
