Annual Nantucket Christmas Stroll Weekend
Nantucket, MA 02554
There’s one special weekend in December, though, when the streets hum with visitors again. Officially it’s the annual Christmas Stroll Weekend–though locals call it simply “Stroll.” It began 37 years ago, and the idea hasn’t changed since: Give people a reason to get together, to enjoy the island, to give a big boost to its shops and restaurants, and to celebrate a place that doesn’t close up when the air turns cold–it simply relaxes, and in a way its people grow warmer. Stroll brings together people in a good mood, inspired in part by festive shops decorated with holly boughs and fanciful window displays.
Nantucket’s Christmas Stroll Weekend 2010 is set for December 3-5. This year’s Nantucket Noel celebration extends from November 26 through December 31.
