Four days before Christmas, First Town Downtown held its annual Carol Sing event on the Town Hall portico. Although the weather was unseasonably warm, many came out to sing and enjoy the silliness of Karen Resch and her puppet friends.
The event was postponed from the previous weekend when several inches of snow stopped the celebration.
“This is such a nice community event,” said Ashley Dufresne of First Town Downtown. “We had to cancel the parade, but we just postponed the singing. This is such a nice holiday event that a lot of towns don’t do.”
As the carolers watched a puppet show accompanied by Resch, they were led in songs such as “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer,” “Jingle Bells” and “Frosty the Snowman.” Each comical character appeared confused about who he was, as was evidenced by his incorrect holiday costume. It was up to the carolers to sing “their” song to remind them.
The Carol Sing was once independent from the Torchlight Parade, but in recent years the two events were coupled to accommodate busy families whose Christmas season is packed with events.
