Every year hundreds of families flock to the annual Montana Holiday Walk, and this year was no exception with record numbers attending. The ten scenic blocks were packed with entertainment for all. Carol singers and jazz musicians provided authentic entertainment, stores kindly provided holiday treats and cookies and drinks including warm apple cider which was a family favorite provided by Engle & Volkers real estate firm who as always went the extra mile and provided Santa Claus, hundreds of children and adults patiently stood in line to share a Christmas wish and have their photo taken with Santa.

The Montana Ave Merchant's Association Chairman Ryan Ole Hass summed it up by saying,

"The Montana Avenue Holiday Walk is a truly special charming community event that happens to be hosted by the businesses. It takes you back a few decades where small communities around the country would gather to celebrate the holidays together by enjoying small bites, drinks, and, of course, Santa! It is something that residents old and young and even younger absolutely look forward to year after year."
