Town of Montross Hosts 20th Annual Spirit Festival

The Town of Montross hosted its 20th Annual Spirit Festival Dec. 6, kicking off a three-day holiday celebration that included Santa, a tree lighting, a bazaar at the firehouse and open houses at local businesses.


Town Manager Brenda Reamy hailed the weekend as a success. “There was a very good crowd, and everyone enjoyed themselves.”

The crowd braved wet, cold weather to attend a free spaghetti dinner hosted by St. James Episcopal Church, the reading of Christmas stories at the Montross Library, a bazaar at the Montross Firehouse and a tree lighting at Courthouse Square.

“This festival keeps the village atmosphere that means so much to us,” said Reamy.  
 
Along with the tree lighting, there was a welcome by Montross Mayor David O’Dell; a blessing of the tree by Barbara Jean Jones, President of the Westmoreland Volunteer Fire Department Auxiliary; and Christmas music by the Providence United Methodist Church Choir.

At the Montross Firehouse, the Third Annual Holiday Bazaar featured more than three dozen vendors displaying their crafts.  The bazaar ran though the weekend and was crowded with shoppers.

Open houses with refreshments were held Friday at various merchants including: the West-moreland County Farm Bureau, Union First Market Bank, Carrot Cottage, Compulsive Cravings Antiques & Gifts, The Bank of Lancaster, Peoples Community Bank, The Inn at Montross and Bridget’s  Bouquets.
