Carol Sing & Torchlight Parade

Carol Sing & Torchlight Parade
We had a fun evening of holiday festivities on Sunday, December 4th in Windsor center at 6:00 pm organized by First Town Downtown and sponsored by Windsor Federal.

The fun started with the carol sing on the Windsor town green at 6:00 pm. Two groups consisting of choir members from Archer Memorial Church and First Church led the singing. During the carol sing, we enjoyed refreshments donated by Geissler’s Stephanie Stone, Bart's Drive In, and Dunkin'.

The Kiwanis K-Kids Club collected new winter clothing and unwrapped toys for underprivileged JFK school families and the Windsor community.

After the singing came the parade! At 6:30 the Torchlight parade of more than 20 vehicles and marchers began on Capen Street and progressed through the town center in all its lights, music and fanciful decorations! We hope you grabbed a spot near the street to watch the brightly decorated fire trucks parade by in their holiday glory!

There were prizes for best decorated vehicles including the Santa's Sleigh Award, Mayor's Award and Rudolph's Award with judging by local personalities.
