Follow the stars through Chester’s Holiday Festival, tonight

“Fly me to the moon and let me play among the stars,” Frank Sinatra sang. We can’t promise you the moon, but you can certainly play among the stars during Chester’s Starry Night Stroll on Friday, Dec. 4.

The annual Holiday Festival in Chester Center will be dazzling with starry specials and activities. The picturesque historic village will be beautifully decorated for the holidays and the streets will be lined with luminaries. Saint Lucia Girls will walk around offering cookie treats. Carolers will stroll through the village on their way to the town’s Christmas tree, which will be lighted at 6 p.m. while the community gathers for a sing-along.

All evening, the shops and galleries will offer light refreshments and beverages while you browse. At the Chester Gallery  the annual Postcard Show, where all art is 4×6 inches or smaller, will open with a champagne reception. Leif Nilsson will preview his new works of the Connecticut River Valley and his gardens beginning at 5 p.m. Bill Vollers is reopening Gallery 31 • 47, exhibiting new work in an expanded gallery space. Refreshments will be served.

Lori Warner Studio & Gallery will host a reception for Mandy Carroll-Leiva’s new small collection of champagne diamonds serving as the foundation and inspiration. Visit the Dina Varano Gallery to see the unveiling of Dina’s new collection created especially for this holiday season. On this special themed Starry Night, an original hand-painted, starry holiday card will be given away with every purchase.

The 4 Water Street businesses are offering prize drawings, sales, refreshments.

And that’s just a sampling of what’s happening on Starry Night in Chester!
