Downtown events happening this weekend still on

Paris Main StreetParis Main Street and downtown merchants are preparing for this weekend’s events. Although many outdoor activities have been cancelled local due to storm damage, the Santa’s Paws for a Cause one-mile dog Parade and the Wassail Fest are both still on as planned.

The dog parade begins at 10 a.m. on Saturday morning, with pre-parade activities beginning at 8:30 a.m. The Wassail Fest in Downtown is also on Saturday from  1 to 4 p.m.

What is wassail? Wassail is essentially a seasonal spiced cider served as a hot drink and comes from an old English tradition.  You are invited to become the connoisseurs for the best wassail while shopping the stores, visiting the galleries or other businesses and while enjoying the day in Historic Downtown Paris. Your vote will determine the “2013 Wassail Master” who will receive a trophy.
