You may have heard about a hol­i­day event to be held down­town this com­ing week­end. Called Jingle & Mingle, this fes­tive expe­ri­ence will take place in the Many Friends Parklet at 19 North Main Street. It will run from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

According to infor­ma­tion received from Main Street Winchester, Jingle & Mingle will fea­ture a let­ter writ­ing area for the kids, so they can let Santa and his elves know what they want for Christmas. For the grown-ups, there will be ven­dors offer­ing some great gift ideas. And food truck ven­dor Mama D’s Eats and Treats will be on-site to fill our bel­lies with deli­cious joy. 

And what would a Christmas par­ty be with­out the jol­ly old elf him­self? Santa will arrive at 1 p.m. and hang around until 3 for the kids. 

Be sure to bring your hol­i­day spir­it as we cel­e­brate a great day down­town! Updates and more infor­ma­tion may be found on Main Street Winchester’s Facebook page.
