A note of thank you is in order for the Riverside Chamber of Commerce on their sponsorship of Riverside’s 37th Annual Holiday Stroll which took place on Dec. 2.

Because of the efforts of the members of the chamber, as well as our local businesses and community organizations, the Holiday Stroll has grown through the years and is now a much anticipated start to the holiday season.

More than 40 merchants in downtown Riverside and along Harlem Avenue offered holiday-themed treats, demonstrations, performances and activities that were enjoyed by all.

Community events such as the Holiday Stroll allow us all, families, friends and neighbors, to share in what makes our village special. Riverside is not simply a place to live, it is a community. It is where friendships can last a lifetime.

Visit our national historic landmark village to experience the charm of our winding streets, historic gas lamps, and our renowned Olmsted landscape. While in the business district, admire our historic water tower which is aglow in festive holiday colors.

Best holiday wishes to all.

Mike Gorman, president
Village of Riverside
