The 2015 Holiday Stroll promises all the fun and excitement of recent years, an enjoyable family fun day. The core of the Stroll will remain the same. Main and Albion Streets will be transformed into a pedestrian mall with carolers and entertainers on the street, as well as entertainment, story teller, and singers. The stores will be wrapped for the holiday inviting the many revelers into their businesses.

Mark your calendars for Saturday December 5th and join us again for the Holiday Stroll.
