Nashua's 22nd Holiday Stroll attracts thousands of visitors
NASHUA - Nashua lit up with Christmas spirit as their downtown was closed to traffic and opened for strollers for the 22nd year.
More than 30,000 strollers enjoyed live entertainment, warm food from vendors and restaurants, and holiday shopping in the city's downtown.
The evening began with a candlelight walk down Main Street and ending at Railroad square for the city's official Christmas tree lighting.
However, with large crowds comes safety and security. The streets of Downtown were lined with 20 extra Nashua Police officers this year.
A lot of volunteers showed up to help direct traffic as many of the side streets off of Main Street were closed for the event.
The Stroll featured over 75 demonstrations, performances, and attractions including a series of illuminated artwork throughout Downtown displayed by City Arts Nashua.
