Besides the many activities and events offered by the almost 150-year-old town, the streets and buildings were dressed in holiday finery complete with plenty of Winter Wonderland swag. Lights, trees and wreaths — of both elegant and quirky design — were a plenty with both homes, businesses and municipal buildings getting in on the action. Besides the holiday cheer, the community support was obvious with so many backing the effort to be named "Town with the most Holiday Spirit."
