The 16th Annual Winter Holiday Stroll in Nashua was the best ever! Last year the attendance was just under 30,000 and I believe this year must have been over 30,000. Our first visit to this event in 1993 was fun, but disappointing; it started with a candle light walk, but after the lighting of the tree you couldn’t even buy a cup of hot chocolate. Every year since has been better and better.

This year we were right behind the fire engine carrying Santa (11/28/09)

Our sixteen year old granddaughter, Rhianna Marie, went with Sal and me to the event.

This is the view from behind the fire truck. We sang carols all the way uptown to where the tree is located. (11/28/09)

At Railroad Square we stopped to light the tree.

This is what it was like to look back downtown at a sea of people!

It was like watching a holiday movie; everyone was in spirit and having fun.

Rhianna thought she was too old to have her picture taken in front of the tree, but we didn’t (11/28/09)

A few minutes later our son, JR (Sal Jr), his girlfriend, Christina, and our daughter, Joy, found us (11/28/09)

Then Rhianna thought it was okay to pose with the girls (11/28/09)

There were many incredible Ice Sculptures.
