In an attempt to ease the strain of holiday activities, the City of Greenville will be combining many events that were held across multiple days in previous years.
Capping off a wonderful day of Christmas activities the City will hold it’s first ever Christmas fireworks display in Market Square (where the Greenville Farmer’s Market resides) at 7:45 p.m.
Activities begin on Saturday, December 5th at 10:00 am with the Rafter P “Sleigh Bells Ringing 5K”. Registration for the event is available online at inparksweplay.com and onsite registration will begin at 9:00 am that morning.
From 2 – 5 p.m. youngsters can decorate cookies, have their face painted, play in a gaming truck, bounce in the bounce house and listen to Mrs. Claus read a story. From 3:30 – 5 p.m. the Home Depot Santa’s Workshop will be open where the kiddos can get their picture taken with Santa Claus himself.
The Christmas “Parade of Lights” will begin at 6 p.m. followed at 7:20 p.m. by the tree lighting.
As the fireworks light up the sky, the Greenville FFA Toy Drive Concert, featuring Doug Stone and John David Kent, will begin. This is a Free concert, but everyone is asked to bring an unwrapped toy for donation.
Have a safe and Merry Christmas, and most of all enjoy.
