The list is just some of the events that will be taking place during the Holiday, Shop, Sip, and Stroll event which will be up and down Main and Railroad Streets in Great Barrington on Saturday, Dec. 9. This is an excellent opportunity to get into the holiday spirit and complete your holiday shopping as there will be some great shopping specials during the stroll.

I have been to several of the Great Barrington Holiday Stroll events and take it from me they are always fun and packed with endless activities. Describing it here doesn't do the stroll justice, you have to see it for yourself. Once again this year WSBS Radio will be broadcasting live and providing holiday music which we will be playing on sections of Railroad Street and Main Street. You can get complete stroll details by going here.
