November 26, 2011

Today is going to be a fun day for kids of all ages.

The fun begins at 1:00 PM and continues until 7:00 PM.  Plan your day now.

Saturday, November 26th is going to be a great day in Holliston as the 10th annual Holiday Stroll sponsored by the Holliston Business Association  kicks off the festive holiday season of 2011.

The festivities begin at 1:00 with a Petting Zoo on Congregational Church green.  The pets will be welcoming petters until 5:00 that evening.

The Prana Center will be perfoming selections from their production of Annie at 1:30, 1:50 and 2:10---a great take.

At the Library, Pamela Printer-Parsons' musical adventure is designed to delight the senses and soothe the soul for kids and their caretakers at 2:00 and 4:00 PM. Don't miss it.

From 2-5 PM a Holiday Photo Booth will be at St. Mary's Hall for professional quality photos on a green screen with your choice of a holiday background, for $5.00 each.

Want a tattoo?  A professional temporary air brush tattoo with dozens of designs to choose from will be available at Fiske's from 2-5 PM.

Santa will arrive a the corner of Elm and Washington by fire engine at 3:00 PM and will deliver a moving rendition of Clement Moore's A Visit from St. Nicholas ('Twas the night before Christmas---).

From 3 to 3:30 there will be caroling on the green.  All are welcome to join the choristers.

At 3:30 there is a Magic Show, for all ages in St. Mary's Hall

The First Congregational Church handbell ringers will hold two rehearsal style perfomances in the sanctuary of the church at 4 and 5 PM. A holiday boutique toi benefit the handbell choir will be held in the vestibule from 1-7PM.

The Balloon Man will make special balloon animals, just for you at the Grapevine.

The Wine House will host a complimentary beer and wine tasting at their store on Central Street, to anyone over the age 21.  Sorry, kids.

Drop into the Gilman Room at the Library from 4:30-6:30 to hear a relaxing story or do arts and crafts.

The Steeple Pilots, the First Congregational Church teen band, will perform rockin' holiday and pop tunes in the sanctuary at 6 pm.

During the entire Stroll, Jordan Hall will host Ahronian Productions D-J, singer and MC and many local merchants offering their goodies: Bertucci's, FCC Arts and Crafts, Little Bee Farm, Lost Art of Life, Mudville Pottery, Paws 2 Celebrate, Pete's Pet Care, Serena's Groom Room and State Quarters.

Hop aboard the TROLLEY, new this year from 2-6:00PM, at  "T" stops: Washington & Charles, Washington & Elm, Church & Railroad, Hollis Plaza on Central and the Fiske's Parking Lot on Central Street.

Again this year, there is the Holiday  Stroll Passport. Pick up a passport from any local merchant, get an offical passport stamp from at least 15 participating retailers and be eligible to enter a raffle for one of ten $25 gifts offered by these Holliston merchants. When competed, drop off the passport at any of the participating retailers. 

HAPPY HOLIDAY STROLL  HAVE FUN... thank you, Holliston Business Association
