2011 Strawbery Banke candlelight stroll

See also

Stroll through life in a simpler time as 350 years of American history, winter traditions, and holiday celebrations unfolds around you in New Hampshire's oldest waterfront neighborhood. Historic houses from four centuries decorated in period regalia are open to visitors from far and wide to explore. Some even have people dressed in period costumes, doing activities that would have been typical of them during that time.

Hundreds of candles lighting the lanes and landscape. The lights are definitely there, but it may be very dim for people who have trouble seeing in the dark. The pathways are wide enough for strollers, though many of the homes are not. Plan accordingly if bringing small children.
