Don't forget to donate at the Hayride! New Milford CT 12/19/2016

The hayride around the Village Green in New Milford is tons of fun, the visit with Santa a must, but please don't forget to donate to either the New Milford Food Bank or the Community Fuel Bank.

We will happily take your donations and pass them on, and even happier to provide you with this fun event, free of charge!


Holiday Hayride on the Village Green in New Milford, CT

Monday, December 19th, 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm

Hayrides start at the south crossover on the green (by the Bandstand)

Santa will be at the Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices New England Properties office, 27 Main Street


Come on by for a great horse-drawn hayride around our most spectacular Village Green, some hot chocolate, candy canes, popcorn, and of course a visit with the jolly man himself!


New Milford CT holiday hayride 2016

You can be a real "Santa" yourself!


We will take either cash or checks for the donations, checks made out to either "New Milford Food Bank" or "Community Fuel Bank". Come and have fun on us, but I do hope you find it in your hearts to donate to such worthy causes. So many are without the ability to pay for heat, or to have enough food in their homes. Every donation makes a difference to someone in great need. Our wonderful social services office is inundated with requests for help, and this time of year makes it even tougher on people. 

After the hayride, even more fun is here to be enjoyed with the carol sing on the green, hosted by the New Milford Commission on the Arts. From 7-8 pm you can join the band singing some of your most favorite Christmas songs while waiting for Santa to arrive yet again on a firetruck! (That Santa is one busy guy for sure.)

I have always thought the Village Center in New Milford is a beautiful place, and at this time of year there is no doubt in my mind. The trees on the green, the holiday lights in the stores, the wonderful shops and restaurants all throughout the downtown area. Come and enjoy, and its on us. If you are so inclined, and the spirit moves you, you can make a donation to the food and fuel banks and help a family out a bit during the winter season.

Sponsors of the hayride and Santa are Housatonic Valley Insurance (HVI), Bank Street Theater, Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices New England Properties. For the carol sing, the New Milford Commission on the Arts. 

And bring your camera. Photos ops with Santa at the Berkshire Hathaway office is a sure thing.

I hope to see you there!
