You couldn't have picked a more perfect setting to kick off the holiday season in Charlestown on Saturday, Dec. 1. As big, fat snowflakes fell, covering the city with a thin but picturesque blanket of white, Santa Claus visited with children in Preservation Park, while stores throughout the neighborhood offered special activities and savings during the Charlestown Chamber of Commerce's 2012 Holiday Stroll.
Over on Medford Street, artists opened their studios and offered up unique gift items in a Holiday Boutique at the StoveFactory, while the Women's Club provided even more shopping opportunities at their Holiday Fair at the Knights of Columbus.
