Every year, for the past 38 years, the streets of Downtown Bozeman shut down to vehicular traffic and people from all over the valley converge on Main Street for the lighting ceremony. Food vendors lined the sidewalks as people flooded the street looking for a good bite. Downtown businesses gave away snacks and warming beverages to lure Christmas shoppers into their stores.
This year was particularly warm, making it for an almost overwhelming turnout of people wanting to check out the reindeer and hot air balloon. Of course, I was out with my camera and here are my favorite photos from the Christmas Stroll.
