You’ll Love the Chatham Christmas Stroll
The Chatham Christmas Stroll Weekend starts on December 9th. That evening, the residents and visitors of Chatham meet and kick off the weekend with a festive parade down Main Street. A lot of people enjoy participating, especially when it comes to caroling which can make the start of the weekend very festive. At the end of the parade, there is a gorgeous tree lighting ceremony that will leave you in awe. Be sure to take some time and check out the tree, the decorations, and of course the lights. There will also be local bell ringers playing your favorite holiday songs, a treat that shouldn’t be missed. After that, take a stroll around Main Street and revel in the spirit of the weekend. There will be hot chocolate to help keep you warm and be sure to hop on a hayride which will give you a fantastic view of the beautifully decorated streets of Chatham. Be sure to bring your Christmas gift list with you as our stores will be open just a tad later than usual all for people to cross off family and friends gifts off their lists. While you are shopping, be sure to note something that you might like for Christmas. Each store will be excited to welcome you with something unique to them, possibly a warm refreshment or a raffle.
Be sure to get a lot of rest that night because the Chatham Christmas Stroll continues through the weekend. Take the kids to Chatham Wayside Inn for a fun and delicious breakfast with Santa and Mrs. Claus. On Saturday, the stores will be open and ready for more visitors all hoping to find the perfect present for their loved ones.
