NORTHAMPTON – Hundreds, if not thousands, of people filled Main Street for three hours on Saturday evening for the third annual Holiday Stroll put on by the Downtown Northampton Association. The free event featured over 30 local musical acts, a pair of wandering giant monkey puppets, kids games, campfires for roasting s’mores, and a host of other family-friendly entertainment both inside and out on what was a fairly mild night for the first of December.
