The shoppers will be transported via a holiday trolley from one end of the downtown to the other. Santa and Mrs. Claus will be the special guests of the event. The special guests will be transported to the Freeport Public Library. They will welcome the families and children there from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm. Stephen Douglas, and Abraham and Mary Todd Lincoln will also be the special guests at the trolley. They will share historic stories with the shoppers on the trolley.

Nicole Haas, the brand director of the Greater Freeport Partnership, said, “We look forward to Mistletoe Walk each year. There are so many gift ideas right here in Stephenson County.” Another shopping event, Small Business Saturday, will be celebrated on November 30. If you miss the Mistletoe Walk then attend this event for sure.
