BOZEMAN — This Saturday, Dec. 3, downtown Bozeman will host its annual Christmas Stroll.

Back for its 42nd year, the Christmas Stroll will feature Santa, the lighting of the famous spiders, and of course, food and fun.

“A stroll is unique in that we have over 50 nonprofits offering different activities. We have food vendors, and we have some businesses offering really fun Christmas items ordered making cookies,” says Cache Perdue, Downtown Bozeman program director.

The stroll starts at 4:30 p.m. and runs until 7 p.m. Organizers of the event say to plan on downtown being busy with extra traffic from the MSU football game that day. They are encouraging people to carpool if they are headed downtown to the festivities.

“So there's a lot of festive things going around and Santa is going to be down here, gonna have a circus village, it'll be awesome,” says Perdue.

Organizers say that Christmas Stroll buttons are on sale and the proceeds go towards keeping the event free.
