A Clinton Christmas Stroll this month will feature photos with Santa and Mrs. Claus, horse-drawn carriage rides, food trucks, a nativity scene, and a silent auction to benefit the Education Foundation.
“Additionally, the brick-and-mortar shops will be staying open late for shopping on this Small Business Saturday,” a press release said.
The Christmas Stroll, a new event, is scheduled from 5 to 9 p.m. Saturday, November 27, in Historic Downtown Clinton.
The live nativity scene will be held in the Hoskins Park on Market Street. It will feature live animals, caroling, cookies and cider, and a kid’s craft. The horse-drawn carriage rides are $20 per family, and the carriage can hold up to six people at a time, the press release said. The ride will start on Freddy Fagan Way and go behind Shabby Remakes and then circle around down Market Street.
“We are so excited to have the Education Foundation involved with this event as well,” the press release said. “Each board member has put together a basket that will be available as silent auction items. These baskets make great gifts as you’re shopping for Christmas and all funds go to the Education Foundation.”
The press release said Santa and Mrs. Claus will be on hand for photos as they read “‘Twas the Night Before
Christmas” to each child that comes to visit them. They will be in front of the gazebo at the new Maude Brown Park.
Historic Downtown Clinton will also have sweatshirts and brand new Clinton Christmas ornaments that feature the green bridge, the press release said.
