The holidays are just around the corner and Downtown Shelton knows just how to kick off the season with our HOLIDAY MAGIC event! For years there has been a joint effort between the Shelton Downtown Merchants and the Kristmas Town Kiwanis in creating two days of merriment and family activities and this year is no different.
Friday, December 6th
It all starts Friday DECEMBER 6th with the following festivities: Tree lighting at the Post Office Park (6:00pm), Lt. Gov. Brad Owen will light the tree to begin the festivities, followed by over 100 singers leading you in song. Harstine Island Community Choir, who organizes the music for Holiday Magic each year, has invited choirs from various local schools to join them. The combined youth choirs of Evergreen Elementary (director Janis Salzer), Olympic Middle School (Patty Thornton), Bordeaux Elementary (Marni Zorn), and Mt.
