FAIRFIELD — Despite the cold evening, shoppers and carolers, families and friends, turned out for the 5th annual holiday “Shop & Stroll” downtown Dec. 7.

The Fairfield Prep Enchords serenaded shoppers, as did Fairfield Warde High School’s chamber choir and Fairfield Ludlowe High School’s wind ensemble, and ice sculpture artist Bill Covitz demonstrated his skills. Attendees also got to snack on treats inside participating stores while browsing the merchandise.

The event was being co-sponsored by the town of Fairfield and the Fairfield Chamber of Commerce.
