Haverhill is turning into Whoville! The city will hold its 25th annual Christmas Stroll on Saturday, Dec. 2 from 2 to 6 p.m. in downtown Haverhill.

Themed around the Grinch, downtown will go green in a giant Who-labration that includes family-friendly activities like cookie decorating, ornament making and live music performances by the 2017 Haverhill Idol winners.

Local shops and restaurants will be open for business during the event, which is free and open to the public.

The annual tree lighting with Santa will take place during the Stroll in Washington Square.
