Holiday Stroll starts a day early

The Holiday Stroll, which fill the downtown area with festive caroling, elaborate ice sculpting and plenty of holiday shopping this weekend, is starting a day earlier this year.

Instead of the traditional Friday night kick-off, the celebration begins 10 a.m. Thursday with the first-ever stocking stuff preview event.

Organizers from Downtown Ridgefield are encouraging residents to visit participating merchants, who will be raffling off a stocking that is stuffed with merchandise from each individual store.

There will also be holiday cocktail offerings at local restaurants that begin later Thursday around 6 p.m.

“Because it’s a school night, we’re encouraging Thursday to be more of an adult date night — get dinner in town, shop local before the big crowds show up on Friday,” explained Kathy Graham, vice president of Fairfield County Bank, who organizes Downtown Ridgefield’s seasonal events. “We decided to have this opportunity for adults and to extend the stroll into a third day because it has gotten to be such a huge event for our town.”

The stroll’s events on Friday begin at 6 p.m. and run to 10 p.m.

Saturday’s schedule starts at 10 and runs until 4.
