The town of Stockbridge, Mass. celebrates the 21st annual Stockbridge Main Street at Christmas, December 4th and 5th, 2010. This event celebrates Norman Rockwell’s popular depiction of what for many is the quintessential small New England Town; Rockwell began painting the image in 1956, but did not complete it until December 1967. The highlight of the weekend is a recreation on Sunday of the scene depicted in Main Street at Christmas, complete with vintage automobiles parked in the spots occupied in the painting. The day’s activities include horse drawn rides, a visit from Santa Claus, music, photos with Rockwell, Roger the Jester, and much more.
