Premier Christmas Celebration Scheduled for Dec. 2nd
For the first time in Southington’s history the town’s two annual holiday events, which are coordinated by the Merchants of Downtown Southington and the Village of Plantsville Association, will take place on the same evening.
White Christmas in the Community will be held Friday, Dec. 2, from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. in both Downtown Southington and in the Village of Plantsville. Both events will feature transportation to enable families and visitors to travel back and forth between the two locales.
The goal of the combined event is to create a sense of community while showcasing the various businesses that are located within the two sections of town. All property owners and retail establishments that are situated within proximity of the event are asked to display white lights in windows, storefronts, trees, etc. to help make the evening special.
While both the Village and Downtown groups will have their usual array of activities and programs as they have in the past, the evening will also feature some combined events, such as hay rides along the Linear Trail, a trolley running up and down Main Street and a family Christmas ornament craft station at both locations.
Sponsors are currently being sought to help fund this premier combined event. Minimum donations of $100 may be made to: White Christmas in the Community and sent in care of Liberty Bank, 60 North Main St, Southington, CT 06489.
