Litchfield’s annual Holiday Stroll & Tree Lighting usually takes place on the Sunday after Thanksgiving, but this year it’s happening this Sunday, Dec. 3, in Litchfield center and on the Green.
Festivities begin at 2:30 p.m. and the tree lighting on the Green takes place at approximately 5:15 p.m. (See the flier at the bottom of this post.)
The Holiday Stroll is a perfect hometown holiday experience for everyone, especially families with children – and especially with Santa and Mrs. Claus as the star guests.
The festive Holiday Stroll afternoon also features holiday music with Traveling Vin, as well as caroling with Litchfield High School musicians at 4 p.m.
There will be a story time event at Litchfield Volunteer Ambulance’s special “Who-ville,” as well as the popular ornament making workshop at the Litchfield Historical Society.
At the First Congregational Church, you can enjoy cookie decorating with the Girl Scouts, and the Boy Scouts will be serving hot chocolate to Holiday Stroll guests in the center of town.
