Woodbridge Downtown Merchants Association ushered in the beginning of the Yuletide season with the Fifth Annual 'Holiday Stroll'.
The event is timed to coincide with where shoppers are encouraged to support local business by making purchases, particularly holiday gifts, in the local downtowns where they live.
The seasonal event features Santa and Mrs. Claus, a disc jockey, music and other festivities. But the highlight has to be the holiday horse and carriage rides that travel up and down Main Street
The buggy rides were part of the fun on Saturday afternoon Nov. 24. The annual event starts the holiday season in town. Other holiday dates to take note of around town include the annual train show at the Barron Arts Center and the holiday tree lighting, scheduled for Friday, November 30.
