Join Patch for the Old Greenwich First Light Celebration

The Old Greenwich Merchants Association will transform the village into a pedestrian thoroughfare to ring in the holiday season on Dec. 1.


What are you doing Saturday night?

Head to the village of Old Greenwich to get a jumpstart on the holiday season. From 6 to 9 p.m., Saturday, Dec. 1, merchants in the Sound Beach Avenue area will open their doors for the annual Old Greenwich First Light Festival.

In partnership with the Greenwich social services agency Family Centers, the Old Greenwich Merchants Association will begin the evening with the lighting of hundreds of luminaries along the Binney Park walkways.

The festive evening will include extended shopping hours in the stores, horse-drawn carriage rides, holiday carolers and musicians, holiday treats given away by merchants as well as wine tastings. Meet Greenwich Patch staff members at Upper Crust Bagels, where free Patch gear will be available for revelers.

There also will be a tribute at the Sound Beach Volunteer Fire Department for the town's first responders for their tireless efforts in preparation for, during and after Hurricane Sandy.

The park closes at sundown. Will it be open for this occasion? Will we be able to walk in the park?

Absolutely because the foot paths will be lit by luminaries. The lighting of luminaries begins at 5 p.m. Hope you'll drop by Upper Crust Bagels to meet Patch.

Birthday Gifts are not always about cake and flowers. Reinventing your gifts is a must if you are looking for variety. You can try one of these Wedding Gifts ideas to make a your special mark on the occassion: Flowers were used to express what words sometimes could not. That tradition continues today. Whether we wish to express congratulations, offer sympathy, good wishes, or express our love to others, Anniversary Gifts speak for us when we can't find the words we wish to say. No other gift conveys the meaning from the heart like sending Soap Flowers Suitable for cleaning hand, face, bath and etc. simply toss a handful of bath confetti under running water and allow the Gift Ideas Easy to carry. Applicable in home, trip, hotel, office and etc. http://www.buyuniquegifts.net/
