Shop and dine while enjoying the Very Merry Dickens Carolers strolling along the street. The petting zoo is back at Queens Buyway, along with free popcorn for snacking. The kids will be delighted to meet Santa in our inflatable North Pole located at Peg Noonan Park, where there will be hot cocoa and goodies provided by Bear in Boots.
Enjoy live music playing at Vagabond View, Puritan of Cape Cod, The Black Dog, and The Gallery on Main. Some of our local talent will be on display, strolling the street: Turning Pointe Dancers, Soulfege A Cappella Group, and the FHS Band.
