Saturday was a super day to throw a party and that’s just what the Chamber of Commerce did with their annual Christmas Stroll.
Last year it was bitter cold with howling winds and a number of events had to go by the wayside when, if you recall, the temperature rolled off the table and went to 19 degrees below zero, and with howling winds and snow, some folks even got stuck in town.
That was then. This year it was just cold and outdoor events and attractions like the horse drawn wagon rides and the Cardboard parade went on.
Vendors were in three different locations, Joe’s Family Steakhouse, The Lobby and Village Shopping Center with a variety of items for Christmas shoppers to view.
