“06880” Sponsors Downtown Christmas Stroll

Newport has a Christmas Stroll. So does Ridgefield.

Why not Westport?

Great idea! So “06880” (the blog) is sponsoring the first-ever Christmas Stroll for 06880 (the town).

The date is Saturday, December 11. From 4 to 7 p.m., downtown will be even more festive than usual.

Staples’ elite Orphenians will sing. Don Memo will provide hot drinks, at 2 locations.

There’s face painting for kids, and an ugly sweater contest for everyone.

Santa will hang out by Savvy + Grace. He’ll pose for photos with kids, who can also drop off self-addressed letters to him. They’ll be mailed back, with a personal note.

Merchants will offer special surprises from 4 to 7 p.m. during the Stroll too. Here are a few:

    Great Event Idea BUT……
    Its not new to Westport where the Christmas walk occurred each year in December. The difference, almost all stores were open for looking and a treat like hot cider or doughnuts. no sales just looking for ideas in the stores, caroling, hot chestnuts and popcorn in the air. It was magical then as a kid and I hope for the same again. Enjoy Westport

  7. What fun this will be!! Thank you 06880 for thinking of Westport and organizing this event!! Can’t wait.

    What a great idea. Thanks for bringing this idea to Westport 06880 (Dan Woog).

  9. Great idea! But … Let’s see … today is the 2nd day of Chanukah. There are 6 more to go! Christmas doesn’t start for 3 1/2 weeks. Since we are right in the middle of the Festival of Lights, why not promote a Chanukah stroll? Or a Dreidel Dance? Or a Latke Parade?
    Just saying …..
