‘Sip & Stroll’ planned downtown

The second annual Sip & Stroll event, formerly known as the Wine Stroll, will take place Friday from 5 to 8 p.m. in downtown New Milford.

The event is co-sponsored by the New Milford VNA & Hospice, Bank Street Investments and the New Milford Economic Development Department.

Ticket holders will check in at a designated area and receive a stroll map, an event-branded shopping bag and a wine glass, followed by shopping and the sipping of beverages at participating downtown shops and restaurants listed on the map.

Tickets are $25 at the door. Proceeds will benefit Hospice’s Camp Jonathan, a bereavement camp for children.

The ticket includes special offers and discounts provided by the merchants and an entry into a drawing for a gift basket.

The drawing is only available to strollers who visit a specific number of shops and have their stroll map initialed by the shop employee and return the map at the end of the stroll.

For information, call 860-354-2216.
