Come for the Holiday Bazaar, stay all day!
Spend the day in Arlington on December 7th at the Arlington Village Holiday Celebration. Events will be happening all day long. Buy your Christmas Tree at the Community House (donations support the Community House and the Town of Arlington), and stay to shop at the Garden Club's Annual Holiday Bazaar or visit the Martha Canfield Library's Arts and Craft Show. Local inns are offering holiday tours with tickets available at any participating inn, (such as the Arlington Inn and West Mountain Inn), and proceeds will support local food shelves. There will be events for kids all day long including a special story time at the library, a Holiday Craft event (for all ages) at Burdett Commons, and Santa will be at St. James from 3:00-4:30. Luminaries will be lit throughout town, and Town Hall and the Town Tree will be lit at 4:30 in the center of town, (holiday lights on trees and at Town Hall supplied by and hung by the Arlington Lions Club). Stay for caroling around the tree with the newly formed Community Christmas Choir, and free cookies and hot cocoa at the Community House.
