Window Walk and Static Christmas Parade

December 5, 2019

We turn downtown Manchester windows and streets on with this event! Bring the family for a unique and one of a kind experience you won’t want to miss. A lit static parade brings in donations for Operation Santa Claus and shop windows come to life! Free cookies, cocoa, kids’ activities, smores, and more are available. And of course, the event would not be complete without a visit to Mr. and Mrs. Claus. Come and join us!
