Photo Gallery: 11th Annual North End Holiday Stroll

It was a perfect night on Friday, for shopping local in the North End! Now in its 11th year, the annual holiday stroll brought crowds of people pouring into the small businesses located in the neighborhood. Many stores offered special promotions while serving light holiday refreshments and small bites. The festivities kicked off with the North End Beautification Committee lighting the Christmas tree at the corner of Cross and Hanover Streets. There was also a group entertaining on the Prado with singing and dancing.

Participating shops of the holiday stroll included: Shake the Tree, Ensemble, Cataldo Interiors & Baby Boutique, Sedurre, Sol Optics, LIT Boutique, in-jean-ius, Loft and Vine, Lulu’s Sweet Shoppe, I AM Books, SALMAGUNDI, Polkadog Bakery, Heart and Sole, Exhale Spa, Battery Wharf Hotel, North Bennet Street School, the Wild Duck, MyStryde and The Wine Bottega.

All the shops encourage residents and visitors to stop in during the holiday season for the finest independently-owned fashion, gift, home, food & wine shops.
