Dec 1st: Blue Hill Winter Carnival–Meet Santa!

This just in from Michael of El El Frijoles Mexican Restaurant, an active member of the Stonington Farmers Market and the peninsula community:

We have been working hard to produce the Blue Hill Peninsula Chamber of Commerce’sWinter Village Carnival, in Blue Hill.
Bring your kids to Fairwinds Florist starting at 4:00 pm and we will help them decorate some delicious holiday cookies, and then the good people at PMAL will show them how to make a festive and celebratory lantern, while Pat from the Blue Hill Library reads a few seasonally-appropriate childrens’ stories.
And all the while we’ll be serenaded by the dulcet tones of the Blue Hill Consolodated School’s Jazz Combo, playing out front.
At 4:45 Santa will blow in, and lead the children on a little lantern-lit parade (um, photo-op people!) over to the Town Hall lawn where there will be music from Ella Capella, the Bay School choir and then dancing to Planet Pan. We’ll also have  available hot Drinking Chocolate from Black Dinah Chocolatiers, Locally-roasted coffee from 44 North, Roasted chestnuts from Bianco provisions and a even hot pretzels from the Blue Hill Hearth and a few other surprises. Peninsula Montessori will be on hand with free Play-Doh, and they will also have plenty of order forms for our December Burrito Night.
And then there is the Lighting of the Community Tree, decorated by kids from schools all over the peninsula!
This free, child-friendly event promises to take the European model of a Winter village celebration, and run with it.
Where else are you going to get roasted chestnuts and steel drums in the same place?
