The 12th Annual Hopedale Winter Stroll will be held on Saturday, December 2nd in downtown Hopedale, MA. NEW THIS YEAR! We have added a Shop Hop to the event to include any Hopedale businesses & organizations that would like to take part but are not located downtown. The stroll takes place at many stops along Hopedale Street and Dutcher Street including many historic buildings such as the Draper Gym, Hopedale Community House, Bancroft Memorial Library, Hopedale Unitarian Church, Union Evangelical Church and the Little Red Shop Museum. Our Shop Hop list will also include stops all over Hopedale for you to visit, shop, eat and enjoy! Multiple vendor locations will showcase work from local vintage vendors, hand makers, artisans, food vendors and mobile shops. Many businesses will take part in the Stroll and Shop Hop with special offers for customers. Past years have included performers setup along the route like live music at the park, costumed characters, outdoor movies and carolers roaming the route while our guests stroll from stop. All of this ending in the long standing and popular town tradition of the tree lighting and Santa visit at the Hopedale Community House. Scroll down for more information and to see pictures of previous years!
Past entertainment has included Victorian Carolers, costumed characters, live music, outdoor movies, chainsaw carving, balloon animals and petting zoos. If you are an entertainer interested in joining us, email: email@example.com
