Here at Offbeat Avenue we're excited because this is the best way to get into the holiday mood. The unseasonably mild weather combined with a less than civil election season put a real damper on everyone's mood.
Us too! We didn't even start listing Christmas items until recently--we were still in the Halloween frame of mind 😃.
I'm happy to say things have changed. Today, December 3, it's a sunny but brisk 40 degrees out there so bundle up and head on down to the stroll for some family friendly fun.
Most of the businesses downtown will be offering free snacks like candy, cookies, or hot cocoa. There will be hay rides, roasted chestnuts, and of course our favorite lighted dancing snowman in the Common.
Be sure to drop into the basement of the Unitarian Universalist church at 15 West St, right across from the Common to warm up and visit Michelle, who will be working our own Offbeat Avenue table filled with vintage-inspired stocking stuffers for sale. There will be other vendors there as well plus free hot cocoa and cookies to warm you up!
Of course our shop down the street will also be open until 5 so you can still pick up a few gifts and be back to the stroll in time for Santa and the Tree Lighting!
Hope to see you today!
