— Another Hayden holiday tradition is being kept alive.

The Sixth annual Hayden Holiday Stroll will kick off at 1 p.m. today and continue until 4 p.m.

The event is being organized again this year by Wild Goose Coffee owner Tammie Delaney and the Hayden Heritage Center.

It’s basically just a way to get out and have fun in town,” Delaney said. “The last few have been very well attended.

Ryan and Rebecca Wattles will again bring their horses for hayrack rides between the museum and coffee shop, located in the granary building.

Santa will be attending, and a photographer will be available for family photos.

“There are a lot of fun holiday traditions for Hayden,” Delaney said. “It’s been a fun way for us every year to celebrate the Christmas season.

At the granary, chestnuts will actually be roasting on an open fire.

“They taste amazing,” Delaney said. “They’re super hot, so you can warm your pockets.”

The museum will be decorated for the holiday season, and Mary O’Brien will be signing her new book “Edible and Medicinal Plants of the Southern Rockies.” The museum’s expanded gift shop will be selling books on local history, toy train sets for under the tree, kids books and toys.

Delaney said other Hayden businesses have been invited to participate in the event. Thistle Dew of Walnut Street offers beauty care products and natural skin care products.

Inside the granary building, The Find recently opened. The business offers upcycled furniture, knick knacks and salvaged pieces from buildings.
