- FUN FEATURES
It's hard to believe but the holiday season is in full swing. Thanksgiving has come and gone as has Hanukkah, and Christmas is a mere 19 days away.
If you're looking to get into some holiday cheer, think about filling your weekend schedule with a few of these fun local events:
Today, Dec. 6
Cheshire Fitness Zone Pediatric Therapy
382 South Main Street
5 to 8 p.m.
There are times when children with disabilities are unable to visit with Santa in a crowded and loud public environment. This type of setting can be overwhelming for children and can turn what should be a fun experience into a stressful one.
Cheshire Fitness Zone Pediatric Therapy is proud to offer children with special needs the opportunity to visit with Santa in a safe, non-intimidating environment. Children will be provided a one-on-one visit with Santa in a quiet and peaceful setting to accommodate each child’s individual sensory needs. There will be physical, occupational, and speech therapists volunteering to ensure a positive experience. Children will be given a framed print of their visit with Santa as a keepsake.
Saturday, Dec. 7
First Congregational Church
111 Church Drive (On the green)
9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
New this year is a Chocolate Shoppe with filled chocolates, chocolate desserts of all types, and the chocolate-and-caramel-covered bacon.
Those attending the Fair may also participate in the popular Cookie Walk, featuring homemade holiday cookies of all descriptions.
In the children’s area, kids may make a gingerbread house or a craft, visit with Santa Claus, or purchase a $1 “treasure jar.” Gift baskets will be sold, as well as fresh pine wreaths.
Lunch begins at 11 a.m., featuring the church’s famous corn chowder as well as roasted pepper soup, wraps, pulled pork, meatball or eggplant sandwiches, hot dogs, and pie. Handcrafted items, baked goods, jams and jellies and international items will also be for sale.
St. Peter’s Church
59 Main Street
9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
The annual event features all things Christmas—home décor, tree trimming, gifts including jewelry, collectibles, toys, homemade baked goods and exquisitely decorated gift baskets of all varieties.
Lunch will be served, offering a selection of homemade soups, breads, desserts, and beverages.
