More Retailers, Restaurants Join Holiday Stroll

Every day, the Holiday Stroll adds more stores and restaurants.

From Main Street, Church Lane and the Post Road to the west bank across the river, downtown will rock with Santa Claus, carolers, kids activities, shopping and restaurant deals, and free cocoa and nibbles.

The December 3 event (5 to 7 p.m.) is co-sponsored by “06880” and the Westport Downtown Association.

Among the recent additions: Greens Farms Academy’s Harbor Blues will sing holiday songs at 5 p.m. Staples High School’s Orphenians follow at 6:30. Both will be at the tent in front of Cold Fusion.

In addition, Nick Calabrese — a professional singer and music teacher — will lead anyone who wants to join on a carol sing through downtown.

A box will be set up for donations for the PAL holiday toy drive. Feel free to bring an unwrapped, new gift (or two!).
