Santa and Mrs. Claus will be in Town Hall chambers directly after the tree lighting to meet the children and have pictures taken.

You can also get your holiday shopping started with Special Discounts offered by local Stratford shops. From Sunday, Nov. 25, to Wednesday, Nov. 28, an event called SHOP STRATFORD will feature special offers from participating businesses.

Just wondering. Is the section of Main Street near Town Hall going to be closed to traffic at any point. I have a commitment near there at 6:45 and I'm wondering if I'll be able to drive there or access will be denied. Can anyone help with an answer?

Hal, according to the town's economic development office: Main street will not be closed at any time. North Parade, by the high school will be the only road closed.

The 4:30pm show on 11/27 at Stratford Library is a MAGIC show.
