Christmas Stroll

Every year, the SVIA decorates a tree in Wadawanuck Square and lights it (with generous help from the nearby Stonington Free Library) at a community-wide ceremony that includes singing carols, sipping mulled cider, and the countdown to the lighting of the tree. Following immediately afterwards is the annual Christmas Stroll through the Borough, when local merchants keep their shops open late and welcome visitors with hors d'oeuvres and eggnog and other goodies.

The Stonington Village Christmas Carol Sing, Tree Lighting & Merchant Stroll is held in front of the library in Wadawanuck Square the first Friday in December at 5:30 PM.

The SVIA also places lights and seasonal decoration around Cannon Square.
