The 29th Holiday Stroll in South Hadley on December 1st was successful in every way. The weather was picture perfect...mid-40's, a lovely moon floating overhead, and no wind. The crowds of families with children there to visit with Santa were entertained by holiday music, tables where they could decorate ginger men or sugar cookies, and create their own Holiday cards. There were only smiles to be seen on the South Hadley Common. Santa was escorted to the Common by the South Hadley High Marching Band and a contingent of elfs, usually known as the Leo's (the SHHS Key Club).
Musical entertainment was provided by the Berkshire Hills Academy of Music, the South Hadley Community Band, and the LifePoint Church Choir.
