Fayetteville Christmas preparations are coming together
November 21, 2011 by James
From December 3, 2011 on, Fayetteville residents will have their choice of Christmas celebrations to participate in. With the flyer printing and posters making the rounds, people already have some idea of what to expect. Even so, there’s nothing quite like the experience of being a part of the festivities in person.
This year’s events will be kicked off at the Holliday-Dorsey-Fife Museum. From noon to 4:00 p.m. guests will be able to enjoy holiday snacks and participate in an ornament making session. An additional treat for local lovers of history is the vintage toy collection being shown at the museum. Those who want to get a head start on the holidays this season will have every opportunity to do so.
Afterwards, the 2nd annual Christmas Parade will begin at 4:30 p.m. Although the poster printing has been doing a lot to inform people about Fayetteville’s Christmas plans, it’s worth pointing out again that parade applications have been made available through the city’s website.
According to the site, once the parade has ended there will be a Tree Lighting followed up with free popcorn and warm drinks. That’s not all however. At 7:00 p.m. Santa Claus is going to make an appearance and offer carriage rides.
Wonderful as the parade promises to be, local brochure printers have also been busy running prints for the Mayor’s Christmas Motorcade. With each gift donated, mental health patients throughout the area will receive Christmas presents and other gifts throughout the year. The free food and the great cause will make this year’s celebration the most memorable to date.
