“City sidewalks, busy sidewalks
dressed in holiday style
in the air there’s a feeling of Christmas…”

Imagine horse-drawn trolley rides, festive East Coast Carollers spreading seasonal glad tidings as they meander our historic uptown streets.  Shops, lit and warm, welcome visitors with gingerbread, hot cider, and personal greeting as only specialty boutiques and shops can.  Friday, December 7th will be a unique holiday experience and create memories that will last a life time.  Bring a date, get some friends together, come alone, or treat your family to this charming uptown tradition.

‘It’s Christmastime in the City’…and tonight is the most special evening to enjoy the season uptown!

FREE on-street parking beginning at 5pm, compliments of The Saint John Parking Commission.
