As Christmas trees go up across Muscatine County, Wilton will add to the holiday spirit by hosting their annual Window Walk on Sunday, December 8th. From 4:30 pm until 7:00 pm, people of all ages can get into a holiday mood by enjoying this year’s Window Walk—Oh, Christmas Tree theme.

Made up of many fun holiday events, no one will want to miss the Window Walk. To kick things off, the Wilton Alumni Association will put on their play at the Masonic Lodge, beginning at 4:00 pm.

The star of the show, businesses throughout Wilton will compete for best window display. Categories will include Best Window, Most Original, and Judge’s Choice, all of which will inspire the community to go all out with their decorations. In the spirit of dressing up the town, businesses or individuals can adopt a light pole for the second year in a row, adding more cheer to the town and another avenue for friendly competition. Proceeds from the poles will help support area families in need, making it a doubly sweet tradition.

Kids of all ages will anxiously await the arrival of Santa and Mrs. Claus, who will come to light the community tree. Following this ceremony, they will meet with children and give out treat bags, beautifully decorated by Wilton Elementary School first graders. Kids can also go for hayrack rides and enjoy caroling with the Wilton Junior-Senior High School choir.

In the evening, Window Walk Attendees can warm up with a soup supper, hosted by the Boy Scouts in the Wilton Community Room. The Christmas Tree Extravaganza will also go on all afternoon long at the Wilton Depot, in perfect keeping with the Oh, Christmas Tree theme.

A long-standing Wilton tradition, Brandy Marquez, Executive Vice President of the Wilton Chamber of Commerce, hopes to see a good turnout at this year’s Window Walk. “I encourage people to come down because it’s a fantastic way to bring the citizens and businesses of Wilton together,” she shared. “I personally enjoy seeing the downtown looking so festive and fun…and of course, the looks on the children’s faces when they visit with Santa.”
