2016 Union Square Holiday Stroll

On Saturday, December 10th, Union Square Main Streets is once again partnering with our local businesses to bring you our second annual Union Square Holiday Stroll.

We will be building on the success of last year’s inaugural Holiday Stroll with great festive offerings from our local businesses, live music, a visit from Santa, a Holiday Display Contest and access to over 60 vendors from 11 AM – 4 PM.

The timing is just right to buy your tree, do some holiday gift shopping, and have a great meal while enjoying the pleasures of the season with our local decorations, music and Santa.

Enjoy free popcorn, cocoa and other treats.  Indulge in a deeply discounted spiked cider.  Shop for beautiful, handmade gifts: scarves, toys, jewelry, clothing and more…
