  • Now in its 45th year, the Chamber-sponsored Christmas Stroll Weekend presented by The Steamship Authority, is an enchanting, magical tribute to the wonderment of bygone Christmases. Join us November 30 through December 2. This year's event is themed "A Beautiful Stroll in the Neighborhood" to commemorate
    the 50th Anniversary debut of Mister Rogers Neighborhood on PBS
    . It likewise pays homage to longtime summer resident Fred Rogers whose iconic "Crooked House" in Madaket is a historic island landmark, and whose legacy
    of gentle, caring acceptance of all people remains undimmed.
