    Christmas in Weston 2016

    Village of Weston

    December 3, 2016 – All Day

    “Christmas in Weston” is a day-long celebration of family fun that ushers in the Holiday Season for the Mountain Communities, residents and visitors alike. It is a traditional event that has been re-energized and has been selected as a 2012/2013/2014 “Top Ten Winter Event” by the Vermont Chamber of Commerce three years in a row.
    This year, “Christmas in Weston” will take place on Saturday, December 3rd 2016. At the heart of “Christmas in Weston” are the many activities for all ages and events conducted, without any form of admission charge, by Weston Businesses and organizations. Funds raised for this event will go to Weston Fire Department. They are a valuable asset in our community and we are proud to support them. Thanks to all who helped and participated this past year to make it a huge success!
