Little City plans additional holiday activities
VERGENNES — Outside the traditional Holiday Stroll activities, Vergennes will be the site of many other happenings to get you in the spirit and ready for the holidays.
The holiday shopping season kicks into high gear with the “Magic on Main” promotion on Thursday, Dec. 6, from 5-8 p.m. throughout downtown Vergennes. Magic on Main brings the best of the holiday season to light, as downtown stores will be open into the evening for your shopping pleasure. Shop up and down the Little City streets for family, friends, teachers and more.
One bit of tradition repeats this season —the “Broadway Direct” show at the Vergennes Opera House on Friday, Dec. 7, 7:30-9:30 p.m.
Now in its 13th year, “Broadway Direct” is the brainchild of local resident and professional actor Bill Carmichael (we know him as Bill Walsh, of course). He brings together some of his professional acting/singing/dancing friends from New York and Boston. Together they present an evening of familiar, funny, moving and exceptional Broadway tunes. Several local area high school students will also participate.
This shows is always popular and typically sells out. Visit vergennesoperahouse.org for more info.
Then, on Friday, Dec. 21, there will be a Holiday Shopper’s Evening with a wine tasting from 5-8 p.m. at Creative Space Gallery at 235 Main St. Enjoy seasonal food favorites paired with selected wines, courtesy of Vergennes Wine.
Creative Space Gallery venue will host a show of holiday art and more from now until Jan. 4.
