Everyone is so community focused and we couldn’t be more pleased to be part of the day,” Milin said. “It allows us to meet new people and spend time with other local business owners, outside of our normal hours.” Laura Saleh, of North Shore Associates in Gynecology and Obstetrics, kept little ones warm by offering loads of excitement. She handed out stickers, tote bags, coloring bags and more, adding to the already festive day. “It’s a great event and I’m enjoying the chance to connect with families, especially the kids who seem to be having so much fun. We are glad to be part of it all,” Saleh said. Down the road by Music Theater Works was a petting zoo, where sheep and llama made tiny tots giggle with glee. Amanda Ault and her children, Allegra and Silas Hurtigan, are veterans of the event, enjoy all the offerings, especially the live animals. “We come every year and just love it, especially the petting zoo.” Ault said. “It’s so nice that these types of free, family events are offered in our own community.” As guests floated from one shop to the next, they stayed entertained by the tunes from adult and youth musicians from North Shore Music. Alex Palmer, 10, of Wilmette, a bass player, performed with his band, Beatlecake. They kept families grooving to tunes like “Sergeant Pepper” and even a few songs from Journey. “It was really fun to have a chance to perform live for everyone here today,” Palmer said. “I think music is always a good addition to an event and makes things more fun.” Despite the cold day, the quaint corridor remained busy throughout the twohour event, allowing children the chance to get few extra treats such as balloons, and a trick or two from a magician who put a smile on the face of all who came to see him perform. wilmette the wilmette beacon | November 9, 2017 | 7 2017 - “OUR” SUCCESS STORIES 2018 - LET’S DO IT TOGETHER AGAIN!
