Oh What A Night

Judging by the families traveling between Blair Square and Cross Street, this was the best First Night Trail Walk yet.  Firepits, ice sculpture, hot cider, hot dogs, snacks, and ice cream greeted the throngs who turned out for the Friends of Holliston Trail's annual gathering.  (Publisher's Note: This article is a repost of yesterday's feature since the Cub Publisher pushed the wrong button!)

As we climbed up to the trail from Arch Street, we met "Peter Panic" and his unicycle.  Hard to miss a guy on a unicycle, juggling, and wearing red and green lights!

Neighbors adorned the Arch Street and Exchange Street bridges with lights that guided visitors from fire pit to fire pit.  Thank you.

On this cold and damp night the line at the TC Scoops ice cream stand made it seem like it was summer.

What an awesome ice sculpture in Blair Square!  Don't let the Panther get you.

The Friends of Holliston Trails planned to judge who had the best fire pit.  We couldn't wait for their results as publication time drew nigh.  Here's our pick.  Union Street's Jon Sutherland went old school with a 55 gallon drum fire pit and 4 foot long tree branches with marshmallows ready to roast.

As we found our way home we met Steve and Jackie Napolitano and their granddaughters Kalen DelVecchio (returning to Holliston from Virginia) and Willow Hagerty.

The organizers even arranged for the heaviest precipitation to happen after 8 o'clock to help extinguish the glowing embers.

A big thank you to the Friends of Holliston Trails for putting together such a first class event.  Cheers!
