On Nov. 19, the Moorestown Business Association will hold its annual Main Street Candlelight Stroll to usher in the Christmas season.
As the event’s chairperson, Christine Dash noted, “It’s definitely a tradition here in town.” This year, we made the decision to relocate it a few weeks earlier, right before Thanksgiving.
On November 19, there will be lots of festivities, including horse-drawn carriage rides and a kids’ painting competition, as well as luminaries lining the streets.
Dash remarked, “I think it’s a fan favourite, the carriage trips. “It’s really a genuine, old-world experience, and you kind of truly feel the charm of (the) historic Moorestown that we are,” says the author.
As in previous years, she said, “We had the kids’ ‘What the Holidays Mean to Me’ colouring contest in conjunction with The Sun Newspapers. We’re going to make the art competition this year more focused on Thanksgiving, so I’m really forward to see what the kids come up with for that.
A contest for the best Thanksgiving pie will debut this year, and the 2022 Moorestown ornament will be another well-liked event.
Diligence, the horse who was recognised and displayed at Percheron Park, will be featured on this year’s Christmas ornament, which we chose to do to mark the inauguration of Percheron Park, Dash said.
It’s a little bit unique since Percheron Park is now a venue for meeting.
Seasonal music and an outdoor holiday craftsmen village are also available to guests.
Dash stated, “… Crafters may come and consumers can buy presents for the forthcoming Christmas season.” “… We’ll have a tonne of really great holiday music playing all throughout Main Street. Additionally, there will be live entertainment, which is wonderful.
Dash recalled the stroll by night in 2021.
It was a lot of fun, she remembered. “I believe that after COVID, even more people desire to attend events. The MBA events that we’ve had the good fortune to restart have gotten pretty good attendance, and I think this one will too.
The start of the Christmas season with our Main Street candlelight promenade really has me incredibly excited, Dash continued. “I’m looking forward to seeing the town come together and all that comes with it.
“I’m simply really looking forward to seeing all the many noises, sights, and people in our town come together once more.”
