The Hawthorne Holiday stroll was held on Thrusday night. A block party for the holidays, with roasted nuts, apple cider and hot cocoa. While enjoying our snacks we had the pleasure of listening to a local band play some folk music and the classic holiday songs. Portland recieved 2 inches of rain leading up to the start of the event so there were not quite as many people as we had hoped for, but still a good amount of people out enjoying the neighborhood. After we had our fill of the music and festivities we hit the town, or Boulevard rather, and walked around the different shops. We settled on having dinner at Bridgeport Ale House, a local brewery and restaurant. The food was quite good, and the local beer, even better.
All in all is was a great night and a success, I think this annual Holiday stroll will only continue to get better through the coming years.
