Wad Square Tree & Holiday Decor

Holiday Decor

On the first Friday of December, the Tree Lighting on Wadawanuck Square kicks off the holiday season with caroling led by the Stonington Middle School chorus, a visit from Santa, and everyone heads off to the Stroll down Water Street to visit all the merchants.  


For many years, there was an evergreen tree that was decorated each winter with lights for this special evening and to light up the Square through the dark winter nights. That tree died, and the SVIA replaced it with another magnificent evergreen.  We thank the Stonington Garden Club, the Stonington Free Library, and the Stonington COMO for helping us make this gift to the Borough possible.  

In addition to lighting the big tree in Wad Square, the SVIA hangs wreaths on the viaduct fence, adds lights to Cannon Square, and hangs wreaths and lights in front of the Library.
