The spirit of the holiday season was present in the hearts of all the merry townsfolk who walked about the sidewalks of our magical downtown last night.
With carolers strolling about, ice sculptors being artfully created, and the always popular horses clopping down Main Street carrying carriages filled with locals, our town looked like the creative work of Norman Rockwell.
Festively decorated shops opened their doors and welcomed strollers inside for cheer, nibbles, and shopping.
The dancers on display inside the large window of Ridgefield Conservatory of Dance dressed in costumes from The Nutcracker was a sight to behold.
The Library was not only the Horse & Carriage central but was a music and art hub last night. School of Rock jammed on the front lawn and inside, hundreds gathered to view Martha Talburt's Art and Soul student art exhibit and the accompanying musical presentation by her granddaughter, Madeleine Bouissou, and Christian De Luca.
It truly is "A Wonderful Life" in Ridgefield, Connecticut. Thanks to all who made it possible, including Downtown Ridgefield, Inc. and the amazing local merchants.
The fun continues throughout the day today in downtown Ridgefield. Be sure to check out the magnificent ice sculptures and visit Ridgefield Police "Toys for Tots" cruiser in front of The Toy Chest.
