A lively holiday spirit has come to life in Greenwich at the magical 7th Annual Greenwich Holiday Stroll Weekend.
The fun festivities continue through Sunday from noon to 6:00 pm throughout downtown Greenwich.
Visitors can enjoy a myriad of activities including a Reindeer Festival at McArdle’s Florist and Garden Center which includes an outdoor robust showing of reindeer and photos with Santa inside their glowing holiday shop.
At The National Restaurant, a newcomer to Greenwich Ave, manager Tom Uberuaga, was busy sampling fresh mulled apple cider.
Other events include live nativity, featuring nine animals in Greenwich area churches, two different horse drawn carriage rides, a horse petting station at Wine Wise, a live music Entertainment tent featuring outstanding singing performances and Professional Ice sculpture demonstrations.
The food truck village in the Board of Education parking lot on Greenwich Avenue has five parked trucks serving unique and delicious foods while strolling and shopping.
There is so much to see and do on the Avenue, with 100 Greenwich merchants participating, with many offering promotions, including specials through GreenwichVIP.com, refreshments and in-store attractions.
