Christmas Begins in Westport

The BEST week-end ever to get you in the Christmas groove. Thanks to Westport Arts Council and Tracy and Paul for two amazing Christmas Markets. Shoppers were out for Shop’n’Hop Saturday Night – great work businesses. The Lions Santa Claus Parade today was incredible with so many local people participating and having a lot of fun.

The Christmas Tree on Spy Rock was lit last night – thanks Rob and your elves – and it shone bright and true in the cold, clear night.

And finally, hats off to everyone who made generous donations to the Westport Food Bank. The mountain of food grew before our eyes at Kudrinko’s this afternoon. Special mention to Lake 88.1 for their coverage. If you missed today’s event and want to donate, you can e-transfer to

Hometown Pride – what a great feeling.
