Celebrate Christmas in Weston, Saturday

Saturday, Dec. 7 at 11 a.m.—WESTON— Now in its 35th year, “Christmas in Weston” is a day-long event celebrating traditional holiday nostalgia taking place on Saturday, Dec. 7, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Visitors will be treated to a host of free, fun events and activities for all ages at galleries, shops, museums and inns throughout the scenic village.

“This event offers a wide range of holiday –themed performances and activities for children and adults alike,” Jim Szabo, director of retail at The Vermont Country Store and president of the Weston Business Council said. “It’s a Vermont Christmas experience that you’ll remember for a lifetime.”

Visitors can start the morning off with a tantalizing breakfast at the Colonial House Inn, and tour the village on foot or by two horse-drawn wagons (weather permitting). Children will enjoy visiting with Santa and petting farm  at The Vermont Country Store. For some hands-on activities, the little ones can make crafts at the historic Little School, then go and enjoy a reading of “The Night Before Christmas” with Mimi Neff at the Wilder Memorial Library. At the Village Green Gallery, listen to a book reading by UK actor and director Daymon Britton of “Donkey and Carlo” and “Donkey It’s Snowing.” Finally, toast marshmallows in an open fire pit at the Weston Village Store.

Later on, enjoy a hearty lunch at the Mildred’s Grill and a cappuccino and cannoli at the Village Green Gallery. Other food options include hamburgers and hot dogs cooked up hot by the Weston Fire Department on the village green. Over at the Weston Playhouse enjoy hot chili, mac and cheese and festive holiday cookies. In front of the Little School, you’ll find homemade soup and sausage and peppers prepared by Downtown Grocery in Ludlow.

One-of-a-kind gifts are available at The Vermont Country Store, Weston Village Store, The Weston Village Christmas Shop, and The Village Green Gallery. See the quilt show by local artisans on display at the lobby of the Weston Playhouse.
