‘Christmas in Weston’ features a variety of fun activities

Now in its 35th year, Christmas in Weston will celebrate traditional holiday nostalgia taking place on Saturday, Dec. 7, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Free, fun events and activities for all ages at galleries, shops, museums, and inns throughout the scenic village and delicious food can be enjoyed all day long.

Funds raised through donations, raffle, and food sales at designated vendors from this event will benefit the Little School in Weston, a preschool for children ages 2 to 5, which serves Weston and surrounding towns, including Chester, Andover, Ludlow, Cavendish, Peru, Landgrove and Londonderry.

Visitors can start the morning off with a breakfast at the Colonial House Inn and tour the village on foot or by two horse-drawn wagons (weather permitting). Children will enjoy visiting with Santa and the petting farm zoo at the Vermont Country Store.

A quilt show by local artisans will be on display at the lobby of the Weston Playhouse, which also will host magician Doug Eash for two shows of magic and fun. Also at the Playhouse, the Little School will offer face painting for kids.

The Church on the Hill will have live Christmas caroling featuring Patricia Connelly. In addition, a reading of A Christmas Carol will be performed at the Old Parish Church by the players from the Weston Playhouse Theater Company, who invite audience participation.

The Burr & Burton School chorus will welcome Santa to the Village Green for the lighting of the Weston Christmas Tree with their caroling.
