WILMINGTON- Chili and Chimes, a Winter Village Stroll event, will take place on Saturday, January 18, from 3 to 6 pm. After a day on the slopes or trails, there will be fun downtown for everyone. Experience a winter celebration in the village featuring chili samples and handmade chime displays. Warm your belly and soothe your soul. The event is free and everyone is welcome.

What’s happening? Chili! Sample chili from downtown restaurants at locations throughout the village. Chili styles range from mild and delightful to wild and adventurous. What a great way to warm up as you stroll through town. Look for “spoon chimes” marking locations that have chili or other events. Restaurants and bars will be offering hot drink specials for the day: hot chai walla spiced cider or Irish coffee anyone?

Chimes are truly a must see. Ever seen or heard chimes made from ski poles? Surprisingly beautiful in appearance and sound, River Bank Park will have a wind chime “chandelier” on display thanks to the people of SAP (Social Art Project). The individual wind chimes that make up the “chandelier” will be sold following the event. Come to the park to reserve one early and help support future village social art projects.

Bartleby’s Books will be hosting an event with Adam Boyce, author of “The Man From Vermont: Charles Ross Taggart: Old Country Fiddler.” Stop by Bartleby’s to learn more about this historic Vermont entertainer. The store will also have a modern-day fiddler playing after the author event.

Stop by the library for winter arts and crafts projects. There will be hot cocoa in River Bank Park and visits from Snowy the Snowman. Shops will be open for your browsing pleasure: clothing boutiques, art galleries, make your own jewelry, homewares, country store, and more! Plan to stay in the village for dinner after Chili and Chimes. Dinner options range from diner and casual fare to more formal dinner options. Stop in at the Mount Snow Valley Chamber of Commerce for sample menus.

Village Strolls have been a summer ritual for seven years. Join us in celebrating winter at our first January village stroll event. Thanks to event sponsors town of Wilmington and Roseate Creations. For more information visit
