It wouldn’t be the holiday season in Wilton without the Wilton Historical Society’s annual Great Trains Holiday Show, which opens Friday, Nov. 23, from noon to 4, at 224 Danbury Road.
The show gets in full swing on Saturday, Nov. 24, when puppeteer, singer and songwriter Tom Hooker Hanford performs Fiddle de Dee: Children's Folk Songs of Old New England from 2 to 3. The program features music of the mid-19th century, and lore about trains, Thanksgiving and holiday traditions. Hanford performs in costume, with props and masks, making for a magical hour. There is no charge to attend the show.
