Two years ago, hundreds of residents made their way singing house to house in the center of town, but fell short of the goal to break the World Record. While they were unsuccessful, the event was a great and fun one for families and friends. This year, the event will be shared in a west side neighborhood.2014-12-13-16-52-26

The current record was set in 2013 by Waukesha, Wisconsin after breaking Westport’ record of 502 carolers in 2012.

Lovers of Christmas, singing, and bringing joy to their neighbors in this community event are invited to register and meet at Wakelee School between 2 and 3 pm. After a pep talk and group photo, carolers will make their way to fifteen houses along a one mile route. All residents (and non residents!) are invited to attend. Just bring a good pair of shoes and your voice. The Senior bus will be provided to assist those who may get tired or need to keep warm.

Registration is required, and funds from the event benefit local music and arts scholarships. If you register, you must also be present at the 2014-12-13-16-07-07event for a headcount in order to break the record.
