The 36th Newtown Youth & Family Services annual Holiday Festival held on December 5th, 2021 was a beautiful sunny day with temperatures in the 40’s. Unlike years in the past due to Covid vendors lined Newtown’s historic Main Street for the Outdoor Holiday Market & Stroll which ranged from Edmond Town Hall down to the C.H. Booth Library then across the street to Trinity Church and down Church Hill Rd to the Newtown Hook and Ladder Fire Department.

Santa greeted kids as they arrived Edmond Town Hall and it was the departure station for those interested in some of Newtown’s history. Trolley sightseers traveled down Main St as they listened to stories about some of the historic homes.

Inside Edmond Town Hall various groups entertained visitors in the Alexandria Room, while dance and ballet was held on the big stage. Outside musicians and singers strolled up and down Main St giving the Market a holiday feel.

Downstairs at Trinity Church in the Glover Community Room gingerbread houses were on display so visitors could vote for their favorite Edible Creation. This was also the location for the Festival of Trees.

At Newtown Hook & Ladder was the Superhero Academy with Spiderman, Wonder Woman, and activities for the kids.

Newtown Youth and Family Services (NYFS) is a non-profit youth service bureau and mental health clinic for children, teens, adults, and seniors located in Sandy Hook, CT.
