At this time of the year there are events taking place that you just won’t find at any other time of the year – and we don’t just mean Thanksgiving and Christmas! There are many area holiday events held in November that are a real treat for those spending the season in one of our comfortable winter rentals. We’ve selected a few of them to share with you here but there are many more taking place all around the area. All of us at Litchfield Real Estate hope you will enjoy as many of these events as you can while having a very happy holiday!
