Stuff-a-Cruiser at Winter Welcome
Saturday, December 2 | 2:00 – 5:00 PM

November 20, 2017 – As part of the Mansfield Downtown Partnership’s Fifth Annual Winter Welcome, Mansfield Resident Troopers will be on Betsy Paterson Square collecting unwrapped toys and gifts as part of their annual Stuff-a-Cruiser effort. The toys and gift cards will be donated directly to families in need in Mansfield by the Town of Mansfield Human Services Department.

Winter Welcome is an annual event hosted by the Mansfield Downtown Partnership as a way for the community to welcome in the new season.

Winter Welcome will feature ice sculptures and kettle corn on Paterson Square; a winter-themed puppet show at the Ballard Institute & Museum of Puppetry; and a visit from Santa Claus at Barnes & Noble UConn. There will be open houses, specials, and treats at participating downtown businesses.

Strolling musicians and carolers, including the UConn Marching Band Tubas, Rubyfruit, The Chordials, and Husky Hungama, will delight visitors with pop-up performances throughout the downtown. At 4:30 PM, the E. O. Smith High School Chamber Choir will lead a Community Sing-Along on Paterson Square to cap off the festivities.

Winter Welcome will take place on and around Betsy Paterson Square in Storrs Center from 2:00 PM to 5:00 PM. This event is free and open to the public. Winter Welcome will take place rain or shine.

Parking is available in the Storrs Center Garage, which is free for the first two hours and $1 per hour thereafter, with a daily maximum charge of $8.
