The annual Candlelight Stroll scheduled for this Friday evening, Nov. 30, is a special event created by Hudson's downtown businesses and restaurants especially for adults in the holiday spirit.

Downtown streets are lined with luminary candles and tasty treats will tempt visitors inside shops and restaurants throughout downtown.

Shoppers will find a variety of events staged at participating businesses. There will also be free carriage rides through downtown to Lakefront Park courtesy of Gagnon Inc. and the St. Patrick's Shamrocks and Hudson High School Swing Choir will be caroling.

There will also be performances by the HHS orchestra and by the River City Chorale in Second Street Crossing beginning at 6 p.m.

The Phipps Center is also part of the evening where "A Gift by the Hand," might be just the thing for someone special. The annual Phipps Gallery holiday sale of handmade items by more than 40 local and regional artists will be open that night and through Dec. 31 in the Gift Gallery of The Phipps Center for the Arts. There will also be bell choirs performing in the lobby for the stroll.
