Hundreds of local residents gathered in downtown Holliston on Saturday to welcome the changing of the seasons during the town's annual Spring Stroll.
Organized by the Holliston Business Association, the Spring Stroll aimed to invigorate the town's small business by attracting foot traffic to the area and offering special items to attendees.
Jon Paltrineri, owner of Fiske's General Store, said in light of the recent tragedy in Boston, the event has a deeper meaning.
"We need to get back out there," Paltrineri said. "Things like this give a sense of comfort."
