COST: Free
UPDATES: Facebook Visit us on Facebook

If you’ve never been here for Red Lodge’s annual Christmas Stroll, your holiday season is missing some of its magic. For two evenings, November 30th and December 1st, our downtown shops open their doors late with goodies and treats, while the entire town turns out for the kind of holiday cheer and goodwill that keeps the hearth fires burning ‘til spring. The Stroll starts at 6pm with the increasingly popular Blade Parade - Friday Night Only - (who knew there were so many ways to decorate a snowplow?) and stores stay open until around 9pm. So bundle up the kids and bring your holiday shopping list. It’s a perfect recipe for enjoying the holiday season: Ski, Stroll, & Stay the night.
