Parks and Recreation coordinator Nicole Ferrante said the day is win/win for both families and business.
“Every year, it seems to grow,” she said. “Merchants are so involved and excited. We are proud to see it grow to this level.”
Ferrante said new businesses get exposure by opening their doors and more established ones get the word out about what they do.
Town organizations like Community Alliance for Teen Safety also find local businesses to team up with to get involved in the day.
