Merry Christmas from the Greenwich Post with a look at the annual Greenwich Holiday Stroll

Christmas is upon us but it’s never too late to look back at some of the more enjoyable ways Greenwich celebrated the season, especially the sixth annual Greenwich Holiday Stroll.

The event, which included 116 local merchants participating, was hamstrung a bit by rain on Dec. 6 but on Dec. 7 the skies cleared and the sun came out along with people looking to spend a fun day outside shopping and enjoying the festive atmosphere. The event was designed to kick off the holiday shopping and dining season in Greenwich and it sure did that.

There were several sales going on in stores and outdoor events too including a Live Nativity, a bouncy castle and live holiday music outside the Bank of America. Stores like Vineyard Vines got into the spirit too by dressing up its beloved pink whale mascot in a Santa suit and inside Hoaglands the popular gift store was a veritable winter wonderland as a display was put together in the back of a snowy mountain town.

The sixth annual Greenwich Holiday Stroll was the product of months of work by Tammi Ketler and her team at TMK Sports & Entertainment as well as merchant partners like James McArdle and more. McArdle’s annual Reindeer Festival was done in conjunction with it and made a large donation to Kids In Crisis after a successful holiday stroll weekend.

Post photographer John Ferris Robben was on the scene and collected the holiday season images.
