Kick off the holiday season with a fun-filled morning. At 9:15am, welcome Santa to Middlebury as he arrives via firetruck, over the Cross Street Bridge and up Main Street, going around twice to give everyone time to see him. Then, enjoy a visit with the right jolly old elf himself at the Middlebury Inn from 9:30 a.m.-noon. To avoid a line, please arrive early and take a number with a time to return for your visit. During the wait, families can take an old-fashioned horse-drawn wagon ride through downtown Middlebury.
Don’t leave Middlebury without doing a bit of holiday shopping. Anything purchased in Middlebury can be wrapped for free at 44 Main from noon-4p.m. — just show your receipt! And, of course, make time for a cozy cup of hot cocoa from the always-popular Hot Cocoa Hut (open from 9:30 a.m.-2 p.m.) in Cannon Park; just 25 cents for a cup with all the fixings!
