December 3 – Flemington Holiday Events starting at 3:00. Join us for all or any of the activities starting with the free holiday concert by the Whitehouse Wind Symphony Orchestra at the Historic Hunterdon County Courthouse (Court St & Main). The concert starts at 3:00 but get there early to get a seat and look for fellow walking club members. After the concert, we can walk around town together while waiting for the parade to start at 5:00 depending on how much time we have. Although the parade may go until 7:00, we plan on socializing at Capuano Ristorante Italiano, 67 Church St. (in strip mall next to Little Brothers) BYOB at 6:15 rain or shine. It might be a good idea to park there before the concert and walk to the courthouse (10 minute walk) so you can walk back along the parade route to the restaurant and have your car there after dinner. If not, be aware that Main St. (and Church St. from Main to Liberty Village, not past restaurant) will be closed by 4:00 until after the parade. Some of us plan to meet in front of Capuano’s to leave by 2:30 for concert.
