Dusk settles early in late September and so Walk Around Wiscasset invites strollers to help light up the Village. “You be the Light” is the evening’s theme with participants carrying – or wearing – lights. Only two days after the Autumnal Equinox, the final Walk Around Wiscasset on Thursday, Sept. 24, from 5 - 6:30 p.m., becomes a communal farewell to summer and a hearty welcome to autumn, according to organizers, in a news release.

“Accessorize!” is the final fashion theme for the Walk Around season.

“This is the last chance to show off that new hat, new scarf, favorite necklace, or dapper bow tie that never had its well-deserved public exposure during summer 2020!” said Walk Around. “Consider this a final fashion hurrah before the mild temps. disappear.”

Participants in Walk Around Wiscasset are reminded to wear masks, keep a safe distance, and avoid congregating; “but do wave vigorously to friends and strangers alike!” said organizers. “It’s been a deep slog through the season with occasional pinpricks of light and we all need a dose of community fellowship!”

During the summer of 2020, Walk Around Wiscasset replaced the Wiscasset Art Walk because of coronavirus concerns. To see highlights from Walk Around Wiscasset, visit www.wiscassetartwalk.org. For Wiscasset Art Walk information, please contact Lucia Droby at ludroby@verizon.net
