This year there are 20 wooden soldiers displayed all around Framingham in 16 different places. Have you seen any? If you have, take a picture of the soldier (selfie?), and post it on our FaceBook page. (Or, you can Email us.) The first person to post a picture for one of the places will get a small prize (one prize for each place; one prize per person). With the picture, write where you saw the soldier. Good luck!
A clue: 11 places are south of Route 9, and 5 places are north of Route 9 (3 of them in Saxonville).
These tall wooden soldiers became well known when they guarded the old Shopper’s World shopping center during the Christmas shopping season. Some generous carpenters helped to build new copies of the soldiers, and it has become a Framingham tradition for the wooden soldiers to decorate the town during the holidays.
Thanks Andreia, Sidi, Tena, Marta, and Jingie!
