While the recent balmy temperatures may not show it, the calendar certainly does: It’s December, and Christmas is so close you can taste it. In fact, it’s 19 shopping days close, if that brings it into closer focus for ya! But it’s also time once again for Wallingford Center, Inc.’s 4th Annual Holiday Stroll through the streets of downtown Wallingford on December 7th starting at 4PM.
As part of this festive occasion, Wallingford Center, Inc. will also sponsor the “Stroll, Shop, Win” event, a fantastic raffle with prizes of gift cards from many of the participating stores. First prize is $1,000, second place is $600, and third place is $400. How do you enter, you ask? Simple. Just stop into each of the participating merchants while you stroll and fill out a ballot. The more you stroll, the more places you visit, the more chances you have to win. Easy, right?
And if that wasn’t enough, many of the participating merchants will be offering in-store specials during the event, such as:
- Stop into Gaetano’s Tavern on Main and say the magic word (“stroll”) and get one 1/2 price appetizer per table, plus a Pumpkin Martini or S’Mores hot chocolate drink for $7.00;
- Wallingford Flower & Gift is offering 25% off all in-stock items on display;
- 25% off all coats and boots at The Dressing Room
- …and many more!
In addition, new to the event this year is the addition of activities at the gazebo in Johanna Fishbein Park, including a bonfire from 6pm – 9pm, carols sung by the Wallingford Chorus, roasted chestnuts, and music provide by Showstopper Entertainment.
