Home for the Holidays

In December we entertain Upper Valley Residents in Hanover's quintessential New England downtown.  The streets are decorated with lights, greenery, bows, and a healthy does of holiday cheer!  

Be sure to mark your calendar for the Tree Lighting on the Dartmouth Green followed by the Upper Valley Business Association's "Celebrate the Season" evening of family fun.  HPR events follow the UVBA's kick off event.  Past events have included: a progressive dinner, a silent disco, a storybook scavenger hunt, outdoor movie, holiday craft market, and the Snow Much Fun Fair!

Take a stroll through scenic, downtown Hanover and listen to some festive winter stories. Start your journey at the North Pole in Town Hall. You can find more information HERE! Story walks will be available Friday, December 8.

 Holiday Scavenger Hunt!

Go on a scavenger hunt through downtown Hanover! Be sure to stop at the RWB Community Center or the North Pole in Town Hall for a booklet before you get started. When you have found all the hidden images in town, bring your completed booklet back to the RWB Community Center for some reindeer chow and to be entered in a raffle for a prize!
