95-1 The Moose and the Downtown Bozeman Association proudly present the 31st Annual Christmas Stroll in historic downtown Bozeman on Saturday, December 3, 2011 from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. Come kick off the holiday season and enjoy the fun activities and great food. Our beautiful downtown will once again be shining bright in festive decor and alive with holiday cheer! Here's everything you need to know:

There's nothing quite like the Downtown Bozeman Christmas Stroll. Bring the whole family downtown on the evening of December 3rd and join us for this festive tradition. Ride on the hay wagons, get your picture taken with Santa, watch the lighting ceremony of the downtown decorations, check out the gingerbread house contest entries, sing Christmas carols, grab a bite to eat from one of the 35 non-profit food vendors or do some holiday shopping.

The Christmas Stroll is a free community event that is completely supported by the Stroll's business sponsors and the sales of the timeless button souvenirs. Help support this great event by purchasing a $3 Stroll button. The button is not only your ticket to enjoy many of the great activities, including the Santa pictures at the Baxter Hotel, the hay wagon rides, kid's activities throughout the day at the Emerson Cultural Center and the Bozeman Public Library and more, it also allows the DBA to put on the Stroll every year without requiring an entry fee!
