During the "Frog Days of Fall", one of the events my family looks forward to every year is the Clinton Shoppers' Stroll, held today, the Friday after Thanksgiving. We've been going to this event for many years and are never disappointed.

There are a number of stores open later than usual through the evening, street vendors selling popcorn, hot pretzles and chestnuts (roasting on a grill, not an open fire). There's a holiday choral concert, a Christmas Tree lighting ceremony and a parade.

Here's today's schedule from the villageofclinton.com website:
