This weekend in particular, two seasonal events are happening: <strong>JingleFest in Downtown Greenfield</strong> and <strong>A Special Day in Northfield</strong>. Support your local community and enjoy either or both of these festive events.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <h3>JingleFest | Greenfield, MA</h3> <p>On Friday, December 8, the Greenfield Business Association and downtown merchants of Greenfield are hosting JingleFest from 5 to 8 pm. The theme for this year&rsquo;s event is &ldquo;Light the Way,&rdquo; as festival goers will enter a totally lit up downtown. There will be tons of kid-friendly activities such as holiday crafts, a Children&rsquo;s Holiday Parade, and visits with Santa Claus at Wilson&rsquo;s Department Store.</p> <p>Also during JingleFest, GreenFields Market will sell hot chocolates for just 25 cents and luminarias will be lit throughout Main St. Plus, businesses will compete for the best-decorated display window, voted on by shoppers themselves. All voters will be entered into a drawing for a free shopping spree.</p> <p>Of course, our local passionate art community will be represented at JingleFest, with the reveal of several art displays in storefront windows. Local artists created these works to beautify Main Street for all the shoppers and celebrate the holidays. New this year is the Greenfield Holiday Pop-Up Market, thanks to Yankee Candle, which will be filled with local artisans, music, food, and libations.</p> <p>For more information on JingleFest, visit their <a href="https://www.facebook.com/events/181729822383295/" target="_blank">Facebook page</a>.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <h3>12th Annual A Special Day in Northfield |&nbsp;Northfield, MA</h3> <p>Since you can never have too much holiday fun, the next day, Saturday, December 9, head over to Northfield for their 12th Annual A Special Day in Northfield: Olde Fashioned Holiday Celebration. &nbsp;Happening from 10 am &ldquo;through the evening&rdquo;, this event is produced and sponsored by the Kiwanis Club of Northfield and the Northfield Area Tourism &amp; Business Association.
