The Town of Stratford’s annual Holiday Lighting Festival will be celebrated this year at the Town Hall on Wednesday, November 28th, beginning at 5:30 p.m.

Highlights of the Holiday Lighting Festival will include performances by Stratford school choirs and the arrival of Santa and Mrs. Claus via fire truck, sirens and all. In addition, attendees can look forward to photos with Santa and Mrs. Claus, children’s crafts, and hot chocolate and donuts.

Also in keeping with tradition, families with young children are invited to begin the Holiday Lighting Festival with a family program at the Stratford Library. This year’s library program will run from 4:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. on November 28th (prior to the festivities at the Town Hall) and will consist of a reading of Jan Brett’s winter classic, “The Mitten,” together with live woodland animals as featured in the story. Families can attend the library program and then head over to Town Hall for the remaining festivities. Please register for the library program at
