Midnight Madness in Knowlton
They are extra-Christmas-sy today for an annual event they call Midnight Madness. Everything's open 'til midnight. The light's are up. The carollers are out. There are sleigh rides and bonfires by the pond. And the stores are open for pre-Christmas sales.
Lucy Hoblyn, the co-owner of Brome Lake Books, is one of the organizers.
