It’s the magic of the holiday season.
The predicted rain never fell. The temperature was perfect for strolling.
Which is what hundreds of Westporters, plus out-of-town relatives and friends and strangers did last night.
“06880”‘s first-ever Holiday Stroll featured packed sidewalks, folks wandering in and out of stores for gifts (and freebies), and tons of old-fashioned neighborly fun.
Staples High School’s Orphenians sang. Santa posed for photos. Staples senior Sophie Alcyone painted kids’ faces.
And Tim Stevenson and Lisa Armstrong won a $50 gift certificate to Savvy + Grace, as Ugly Sweater Contest winners.
If you were there: Years from now, you can say you were at the first year of this great tradition.
If you missed it: See you in ’22!
