All About Scituate
Decembers First Friday /Holiday Stroll combo was a huge sucess. Plenty of folks down in the harbor shopping, singing, eating, drinking and having a wonderful time. The clydsdale horse carriage rides were very well attended. We ran into friends from near and far with kids in tow who were raving about the rides. Many stores were seeing lots of folks browsing and making purchases. The 7 & 8th grade band was keeping folks entertained with holiday music. The Holiday Scituate Harbor Wreath Contest was a huge hit as was the Gingerbread building contest again sponsored by the Mill Wharf Restaurant this year.
