The event will start on East Barre Road at the Root Brothers cold storage building. The procession will then proceed on Route 98 to the Barre Presbyterian Church.

There the community is welcome to join in for Christmas carols, hot cocoa, cider and cookies.

“It’s just to get together to enjoy each other’s company,” Barre Town Supervisor Sean Pogue said on Wednesday during the Town Board meeting.
