The historic river city of Clifton will once again be participating in the county’s Christmas festivities with their annual “Stroll Through Christmas.” This year’s event will be on Saturday, December 10th, beginning at 5:30 p.m.
Main Street will be beautifully decorated once again, with Christmas lights and candles illuminating the historic facades. Almost all the businesses on Main Street will be open and will be offering free treats, including cookies, hot dogs, coffee, hot cider, and hot chocolate. Santa Claus will be at SDG Arts & Coffee Bar for free pictures, so be sure to bring the kids to see the jolly old man in person! The Fire Hall will be open as well for the kids to explore the fire trucks.
The High School Band is scheduled to perform, and The Cliftones will once again bring live music to the event as they perform at the Peoples Bank.
Vendors will be set up to offer all kinds of things that would make great Christmas presents, including lots of homemade items. There will be a variety of items such as candles, soaps, pottery, and baked goods.
The evening will come to a close at the First Presbyterian Church beginning at 7:00 p.m. The historic building is the only building in the city that survived the Civil War. The annual candlelight service will conclude the evening with everyone participating in the singing of Christmas songs.
Everyone is invited to come on down to the river city and take a historic “Stroll Through Christmas!”
