As you may know, Christmas on the Common will be hosting our annual Christmas Bazaar. We are pleased to announce the wonderful folks at the Central Square Congregational Church (next to the Common) have allowed us the use of their church for additional indoor vendor spaces. That has given the BBA the ability to host over 90 vendors for your holiday shopping this year, both outside and inside! We’ll also have vendors inside the Bridgewater Masonic Lodge and outside on the street and Common.
