The Grand America Hotel has announced its fourth annual Holiday Window Stroll, just in time to kick off the holiday season. The event features 13 unique, whimsical displays in each of the hotel's retail window. The stroll will start on Black Friday, Nov. 29 at 8 a.m.

This year's theme for the Holiday Window Stroll is “Santa's Workshop.” Guests can take a closer look into the magical world of Santa's helpers as they prepare for the holiday season. “We’re thrilled to invite the local community, as well as guests from all over, to celebrate the magic of the holidays at The Grand,” says Bruce T. Fery, chief executive officer for The Grand America Hotel. “We hope this year’s Holiday Window Stroll, combined with the many holiday events at the hotel, captures the joy of the holiday season for all to enjoy.”

Each window display is meticulously hand-crafted, and includes an animated component that truly captures the imagination. Stroll attendees will receive a “Ticket to the North Pole” to guide their explorations, as well as a special seasonal chocolate at the end of the stroll.

Guests visiting the hotel for the unveiling festivities will be welcomed with eye-catching holiday decor and a host of events, including a book signing and reading of children’s book “Maurice on Holiday.” The first 10 guests to complete the stroll on the launch day will receive a breakfast buffet for two and access to a meet and greet with author Stephen Wunderli and a signed copy of his book.
