The 5th Annual Greenwich Holiday Stroll Weekend will usher in the season with a multitude of activities and entertainment for the whole family on Saturday, Dec. 7 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday, Dec. 8 from noon to 5 p.m.

Parking will be free all weekend.

“This event is a terrific way to start the holiday season and to showcase our beautiful town and its wonderful stores and restaurants,” said First Selectman Peter Tesei. “Now in its fifth year, it’s become an annual tradition that the community looks forward to.”

Created and produced by TMK Sports & Entertainment, the 5th Annual Greenwich Holiday Stroll Weekend will feature new elements this year including a sale, exhibition and family snowman-making art workshop at the Greenwich Arts Council, a horse petting station in front of Wine Wise and a food truck village featuring eight different cuisines on wheels located on East Putnam in front of C.

During the Holiday Stroll Weekend, $5 of every photo package will be donated to Kids in Crisis. There will also be a Giving Tree for Kids in Crisis at McArdle’s throughout the month-long festival.
