New Christmas tradition starting in downtown Nashua this November
Monday, November 22, 2010
You may be familiar with one New Hampshire holiday tradition, the annual Nashua Winter Holiday Stroll. The event takes place on the Saturday following Thanksgiving, which is on November 27 this year, from 5-10pm. The streets are buzzing with holiday spirit and there are plenty of activities, live music and food.
After all, it's hard not to get excited about the upcoming holidays. There's something special about snow-covered streets, the smell of cinnamon and freshly baked cookies and of course, twinkling Christmas trees.
One new downtown Nashua tradition that will coincide with the Holiday Stroll is the Festival of Trees, which is being held from November 27 through December 4. The Festival of Trees, presented by NH Christmas Markets and the Great American Downtown, will be held at 94-96 Main Street, or the old Cameraland for you Nashua residents.
The Festival of Trees will celebrate the holidays by displaying Christmas trees that have been donated and decorated by local businesses. Some of the businesses donating trees for this year's Festival include Hair We Are Face & Body Spa, Nashua Garden Club, Collins Flowers, St. Joseph's Hospital, Persian Rug Gallery, Nashua House of Pizza and Scontsas Fine Jewelry & Home Décor.
Festival goers will have the chance to view the beautifully decorated trees, check out the holiday gift shop as well as bid on trees, raffle and silent auction items.
Tickets for the Festival of Trees are $6 for adults and $3 for ages 3-12. Proceeds from ticket sales as well as auctioned trees will benefit the Great American Downtown, Marguerite's Place and the Police Athletic League.
Besides checking out the trees while you're downtown during the Holiday Stroll, or anytime through December 4, there will be other events happening including a breakfast with Santa, afternoon tea and a gala reception.
