Christmas-time in Hartford

I'm planning a trip up there to see the Grinch Musical during Thanksgiving weekend with my family. I'm wondering if there will be some Christmas/holiday things going on yet or will it be too early? I've seen some talk of a "festival of lights" in '09 and '10...is this still done? If so where and what is usually involved. Any info would be appreciated. Thanks!

Festival of Lights was always on Constitution Plaza on the east side of downtown. For the last 2 years it has been partly there and partly in Bushnell Park on the south side of downtown. Check again as we get closer but both locations are free. There will be a nice display in the south end of Hartford www.hartford.com/event-detail.php?id=1162

If you want to see another show, Hartford Stage does a great one http://www.hartfordstage.org/christmas-carol/

Mark Twain House decorates for Christmas but I'm not sure when that starts marktwainhouse.org/visitor/hours_directions.…

You can take a 45 min. ride to Essex for http://www.essexsteamtrain.com/northpole.html or 20 min. to www.ct-trolley.org/events/winterfest.php
