The Mayor’s “Christmastime in Torrington” committee and the Torrington Historical Society will present a series of eight, 45 minute long, Holiday Lantern Tours of downtown Torrington on Saturday, December 5th. The tour will include information about the historical buildings on Main Street and the fascinating story of Torrington’s first Christmas tree. Under the Warner marquee, Dick Terhune will present Marley's ghost scene from his one-man show “A Christmas Carol."  Two featured storefronts will have displays of merchandise from the 1950s that would have been available for purchase at that time in Main Street department stores.

Tours will start every 15 minutes from 5 pm to 6:45 pm.
Each 45 minute tour will begin at the Hotchkiss-Fyler House Museum and end on lower East Main Street.
Each tour is limited to 8 individuals.
Face masks and social distancing are required.
Join in the holiday spirit by bringing your own lantern or flashlight.

Proceeds from the tour will support the city’s “Christmastime in Torrington” celebration. In case of inclement weather, tours will be rescheduled for the same time on December 6th.
