Winter Walk 2022

We’re excited to see everyone downtown this Thursday, December 8, for the 24th Annual Winter Walk.

Come by the Friends of Downtown Northfield’s booth and with a $10 donation you can get a limited edition wood slice ornament with the iconic Central Block building. Ornaments are handmade in Northfield by a local maker and all proceeds will go to support downtown businesses and programming.
