This weekend will be the beginning of the holiday season in Fairhaven’s historic district. Fairhaven’s century old buildings and streets will be lit up and decorated for the season. Some of the shops will have their windows painted by kids from the Fairhaven Middle School Art Club. The weekend festivities in Village Green will include musicians, carolers, a Victorian Santa who will arrive at 1 PM in a horse drawn carriage on both Friday and Saturday. At 4:30 PM on Friday you can come dressed up as Ebenezer Scrooge for the best Scrooge contest on the Village Green stage.
There will be a magic forest of evergreen trees in front of the stage were carolers will be singing around 5 PM on Friday. There will be horse drawn carriage rides around the neighborhood, from 1 to 4 on both Friday and Saturday.
The annual holiday Tour D’art will also take place on both Friday and Saturday from 5 to 9 PM. There will be artists in many of the shops and galleries.
