Throughout the Mining City, every resident has their own set of traditions and period of time when they "plan" to start celebrating the holiday season. Many customarily start decorating and buying gifts for Christmas at the onset of Thanksgiving. Some have been ready since last summer, while others wait a few days before December 25th to get into the spirit. Then, there are those who have key events that help gear them up for the holiday. One popular and inspiring event in the community that has done just that for so many is the Uptown Butte Christmas Stroll! Like clockwork, it all happens tomorrow night (December 2nd) for everyone in the community and the surrounding area to enjoy! Butte's Stroll has been the leading festive gathering in the area to full-heartedly welcome the December month for decades! Its nostalgic and festive appeal is what keeps people coming back for more.

It was a night to remember as thousands of holiday enthusiasts filled the streets of The Smelter City for the Anaconda Christmas Stroll this past Friday! The festivities began with an awe-inspiring lighted parade that started on Main Street and made its way back to Kennedy Common for the Tree Lighting Ceremony and a much-anticipated visit from Santa Clause. Then came an intense moment as participants waited around the majestic ceremonial tree to see if they would be the winner of the grand prize giveaway of $1500! As it turned out, the proprietor of that prize money went to Teresa Tyler of Wyoming, who was visiting family for the holiday season. Excellent work, Teresa!

Tis' the season for a variety of amazing events, including this year's Anaconda Christmas Stroll!

Then, leading to the aha moment, rumor has it that Santa will make an appearance with the help of the Anaconda-Deer Lodge Fire Department at 6 p.m. From atop one of their pristine fire trucks, children will get a chance to see Old St. Nick greet the community. LIVE music will then fill the air leading to the grand moment of the tree-lighting ceremony, followed by the drawing of $1,500 to one lucky winner! Anyone can participate for a chance to win by purchasing stroll buttons prior to the Christmas Stroll at several businesses in downtown Anaconda.
