Tis the season and it is time once again for the 44th Annual Nantucket Christmas Stroll. Every year the airport at Nantucket looks like an Air Show as so many aircraft bring guests to the island for this event. Luckily most of them have room for extra bags on the return flight! This year’s festivities take place from Friday, December 1st through Sunday, December 3rd. The island of Nantucket rolls out the red carpet for holiday shoppers as they open for their last hurrah until springtime rolls around.
Many events are planned to help celebrate the season, including Santa and Mrs. Santa’s arrival on a Coast Guard Cutter at midday on Saturday. The children love this event! Main Street is closed to traffic so everyone can partake of the live entertainment including carolers singing in period costumes. There are craft shows, raffles, cookie decorating, exhibitions and tours available. The Nantucket Whaling Museum’s display of 80 Christmas trees decorated with different themes is worth a look and will definitely get you in the mood for the holidays. Many of the stores offer holiday refreshments, but if you want to have dinner in one of the local restaurants, make your reservations well ahead of time.
