34th Annual Huntingburg Christmas Stroll (UPDATED WITH PICTURES AND VIDEOS)

Huntingburg (NNDC):

Downtown Fourth Street’s Annual Christmas Stroll was held this weekend downtown Huntingburg. Most of the renovations are complete bring Huntingburg’s old time back to life.

The stroll officially began  with last Sunday evening’s tree lighting in Market Street Park. It will continue though Sunday with various events, eats and festive fun. The Christmas Stroll is seen by many as that kickoff to the Dubois County holiday season.

New to this year’s festival is the addition of two food trucks the Ole Canoe Slider Co. of French Lick and the German Corner of Vevay, which will be stationed on Huntingburg City Hall’s parking lot Friday and Saturday.

Also added is the outdoor movie on Saturday night, hosted by Destination Huntingburg. The movie “Elf” will be shown on a large outdoor screen at Market Street Park at 6 p.m. It is free and open to the public. Barriers have been removed so that vehicular traffic can use the road during the stroll. The sidewalks will continue to be open for pedestrians.

Also as usual.  Santa will be around Saturday to spread holiday cheer and carolers will walk around singing Christmas favorites. Photo hot spots will also be located along the street, and people are encouraged to take photos with the large cutouts.

Again Local Merchants will participate in Window Wars, in which they decorate their windows and seek votes to win bragging rights. Visitors can vote for designs by placing monetary donations in a designated container at each business. The proceeds go to future beatification efforts, including purchasing decorations for next year’s stroll.

There will also be free carriage rides through downtown from noon to 5 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday; loading will be at the Huntingburg City Hall parking lot. And a cookie walk will be held at Teen Outback from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sunday.
