GREAT FALLS — The annual Christmas Stroll in downtown Great Falls will be on Friday, December 6th, from 5 pm to 9 pm. This year’s theme is “Holly Jolly Christmas." The event takes place along Central Avenue from the Civic Center extending several blocks east, and features dozens of craft and food vendors and music, and many downtown shops stay open for the event.
The Downtown Great Falls Association still needs volunteers to help with the stroll - click here if you would like to help.
The Stroll also features the Polar Plunge - an annual fundraiser for Special Olympics Montana, with competing teams taking a chilly dip into a pool (no matter the outside temp). To learn more, click here to visit the event page .
