Live holiday music, visits with Santa, impromptu Christmas caroling, tree lighting ceremonies, food trucks and chestnuts roasting on an open fire — the Christmas Stroll has it all.
The Whitefish Christmas Stroll is the official kickoff to the holiday season and will occur Friday, Dec. 9 from 5 to 9 p.m. in downtown Whitefish.
The evening starts with performances by the Alpine Bell Ringers followed by Harp Music and The North Valley Music School Christmas Recital at the First Presbyterian Church.
Several performances occur outside the O’Shaughnessy Center and along Central Avenue, including dance performances and a performance by The Vocal FVCC Ensemble. Santa arrives at 6:30 p.m. and kicks off the parade down Central Avenue where fire pits are located to provide places to warm up.
Throughout the evening, craft and food vendors, wagon rides from Bar W Guest Ranch and visits with Clydesdales will be available. Stumptown Art Studio invites people to create their own ornaments.
