The following is a press release from George Everett, Executive Director of Mainstreet Uptown Butte:
Despite extremely frigid temperatures and predicted wind chills that will curl your toes just to hear them read aloud, the 23rd Annual Christmas Stroll will be held as planned on Saturday, December 7th in Uptown Butte from 2 pm to 8 pm.
"Everyone is invited to come on out into the cold and enjoy the many activities that will go on as planned, but please dress warm with gloves and hats and coats and plan to stop by the many Uptown businesses and public buildings that will be open, warm and inviting," said George Everett, Executive Director of Mainstreet Uptown Butte.
Many Uptown businesses and public buildings will have their holiday lights and the heat on and stroll participants are encouraged to step inside often and get warm in the many businesses that will be open.
"Wwith the sunlight, I think we'll see a lot of families out enjoying the stroll," said Event Organizer, Josh Peck. "Everyone loves their hot kettle corn and the children's activities and pony rides and stuff, so people don't want to miss it. Even though it's cold, we're Butte tough, so we're going to be out and enjoy it."
Paul Clark Home Volunteer, Polly Smith, encouraged people to come to the Festival of Trees at the Masonic Temple Ballroom.
"It'll be warm in our building," she said. "So it's a good place to warm up if you're strolling around and you want to have a cup of tea or just get warm. We'd be glad to have you."
