WESTPORT — Native resident Dan Woog — well-known author of the 06880 blog — is bringing the party downtown Saturday, Dec. 11, with a first-ever Christmas Stroll.

Modeled on similar strolls in Ridgefield and Newport, R.I., the event — which runs from 4-7 p.m. — will include caroling, face painting, an ugly sweater contest and some special offers at local stores.

“The goal of ‘06880’ is to bring our community together — online and in real time,” said Woog, noting it was for the whole family.

“‘06880’ — the blog and the community — has given plenty to me,” he said. “This is one way to give something back.”
