River Village Holiday held in New Richmond

New Richmond welcomed in the holiday season with an old-fashioned Victorian Christmas Walk and celebration Dec. 1-3.

Attended by several hundred people over the weekend, the event was designed for community members to enjoy and celebrate a traditional river village holiday.

“We wanted to celebrate our river heritage by having a very special, ‘cool’ Christmas event,” said event organizer Cathy Kirschner. “The Victorian theme added that something extra special.”

This is the first year that the village has hosted such an event; event organizers are hopeful that it will become an annual celebration.
