We are SO excited for December! Truthfully we’re looking forward to November ending, but we’re even more thrilled about all the awesome events around the corner. Most notably, A Very Merry Middlebury! The crafty elves around Middlebury (aka the Better Middlebury Partnership) have been working overtime to guarantee a very special month that’s sure to make even your most Grinch-like teen smile.
Because the complete list of events this December is so robust, we thought we’d highlight some of our favorites. Here are a few of MiniBury’s must do events:
Watch Santa arrive by fire truck over Cross Street Bridge and up Main Street at 9:45 a.m, then enjoy an old fashion visit with him! Santa will also be visiting other locations throughout the month. Free
