The holiday stroll taking place in Greenwich this weekend, December 3rd and 4th is simply one of the best reason to live in this lovely town. Come walk the streets of town and enjoy shopping, dining, musical performances and much much more with your local community. As you ponder around the avenue, do NOT forget to go down Arch street and stop at McArdle's Garden Center for a photo with Santa and REAL reindeer! Not only is this event fun, but residents are encourage to donate to "Kids in Crisis", a charity that is located in our state, helping children of Connecticut deal with numerous types of anxiety in their lives. Children experience abuse, hunger, neglect, family conflict and more, are assisted through this organization so this is Greenwich's opportunity to provide assistance to local children.
Throughout the weekend, family, singles, couples and friends can enjoy carolers, horse and buggy rides, face painting, holiday beverages, and the viewing of ice sculptures, on top of checking out the best store on the avenue. Below the schedule of events is provided, so please take advantage and enjoy:
