Leominster Summer and Winter Strolls
The City of Leominster has seasonal events downtown. These include a Summer and Winter Stroll to entice people to come into community enjoying the sights, sounds and tastes of downtown Leominster. Many of the downtown merchants participate having special events or goods for sale or sample.
The Summer Stroll is normally the first Saturday in June and the Winter Stroll is the first Saturday in December culminating in the Mayor’s Tree Lighting of downtown Leominster’s Common.
First Church, situated in the heart of downtown Leominster, has traditionally participated in the Winter Stroll by opening its doors to hungry and cold strollers as a place for a warm up with cookies and hot chocolate. In the past few years this has been accompanied by a craft fair with local crafters displaying their arts for sale.
The Summer Stroll is a wonderful event downtown on a summer’s evening. First Church participates by having a table on Main Street to be present with the greater Leominster Community and to talk about our Community Meal and our efforts in assisting the less fortunate in our community who need help.
