The turkey has been bought. The trimmings have been planned. We are days away from the big event. If you don’t dry the bird, it promises to be a success! But what have you done to make sure the following weekend continues with the holiday spirit?

Have you given any thought to this year’s Holiday Stroll? This is an event not to be missed! The Block Island Holiday Stroll brings you the spirit of the holidays, something you can’t find online or in a big box store. Nothing says “I’ve given a lot of thought to your gift this year” like a unique present from one of the island’s boutique shops. Go ahead, get one for yourself too!

Pick up a friend or two, get on the ferry, head to the island, and be merry. And don’t forget to check out our famous Lobster Pot Tree! The sales and low key shopping event start on Friday November 26th and last all weekend. On Saturday, there will even be a Winter Market where many of your favorite Summer time vendors will be present to showcase their artwork and crafts.

So this year, instead of the traditional Black Friday shopping, we encourage you to make it a Block Friday. In fact, make it a weekend event. Check out these accommodations if a day of holiday fun isn’t enough:

So what are you waiting for? Check out the ferry and plane schedules here and we’ll see you in a few days! As a bonus, the high speed ferry is running!
