Glendora Village to Glow for Annual Holiday Stroll

With Christmas carolers and an appearance from Santa, Glendora kicks off the holiday season.

Glendora’s Holiday Stroll, the annual community kick off to the holiday season, is set for Friday, Nov. 16 in the downtown Village Center.

Visitors are invited to browse village shops along North Glendora Avenue aglow with holiday lights and enjoy Christmas carols by local singing groups in period costume. The Glendora High School choir will also perform.

Santa is expected to make his annual appearance and visitors can even snap a photo with him.

Festivities for the free event begin at 6 p.m. with a tree lighting at 6:30 p.m. in the Bus Plaza in the Village.

In previous years, as many as 5,000 people packed the downtown for the Holiday Stroll. 

For more information, call (626) 914-2357.

I love our village. I love "strolling" in our village. But I DON'T like combining/confusing holidays. When I'm preparing for Valentin's Day I'm not attending Easter events. So...my point is...my family thouroughly enjoys Thanksgiving. When it is over, we begin enjoying Christmas. So...we never participate in the "Village Stroll." We sure would love to, but on a more appropriate date.

I think these days "the holidays" include Thanksgiving, and there is nothing wrong with that. Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hanukkah and New Years are some of the year's most special holidays, why not enjoy 'the season" for as long as possible? The City goes to a lot of effort to trim and light the trees, I think it is nice that we get to enjoy that for a while. If you have the stroll on the Friday after Thanksgiving, many people will be out of town for the Thanksgiving weekend so they'd miss it. Once we get into December, there are parties, events, etc. so it would conflict with all of that. I'm a proud Glendoran that is pleased with the way the way our town celebrates the holidays. You're missing out, Ms. Ward, on a lovely evening by not being a little more open minded.
