Everyone is invited to this free event.

The annual event features lighted trees, music, fire pits, cookies, cider, wassail, and hot chocolate, a live DJ, and warm food from Perfectly Seasoned Catering.

At Main Street Square, the businesses will offer shopping, refreshments, and other activities, besides several food trucks at Main and Williams Streets. The list of participating businesses is still being finalized.
