Buzz of the Week: It's (Still) A Wonderful Life
Monday, November 29, 2010
The closest thing in our modern age to the fictional town in the holiday movie, "It's A Wonderful Life" is the annual New Canaan Holiday Stroll, which will be held this year on Friday night, December 3rd from 6 - 9 PM and Saturday December 4th from 10 - 5PM.
On Friday evening, residents of all ages gather on New Canaan's Elm Street to enjoy the festivities: singing Christmas carols and enjoying performances by the Norwalk Symphony Ensemble Orchestra as well as entertainment from a cast of holiday characters. Everyone warms up with delicious seasonal beverages provided by local merchants, as guests shop.
The Friday evening event culminates with the arrival of Santa on Ol' Faithful, as the holiday lights around the lampposts brighten the December sky. The Holiday Stroll continues all day Saturday with festive characters, in-shop events and pictures with Santa at Santa's workshop.
