Wallingford Holiday Stroll 2014
Where does the time go?? It seems like just yesterday it was Summer and we were basking in the warmth of the long days, and Thanksgiving and Christmas seemed a long way off. Now here it is November, Thanksgiving is right around the corner, and Christmas is so close you can taste it. In fact, it’s 39 shopping days close, if that brings it into closer focus for ya! But it’s also time once again for Wallingford Center, Inc.’s 6th Annual Holiday Stroll through the streets of downtown Wallingford on Friday, December 5th from 4PM to 9PM.
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 and there will once again be 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 a DJ. Also, there will be ice carvers, the Pink Ladies will be selling S’Mores in front of Gaetano’s, and Santa and Mrs. Claus will make an appearance at Mr. D’s.
Also, the HUBCAP Wallingford office at 128 Center Street will be open to showcase businesses that are located in the area of Quinnipiac Street. They will have tables set up so the public can see what they offer and interact with the merchants.
