Tree-mendous fun on the way in Greenville

October 20, 2013 by  

Amusing kids during the holiday season should be easily achieved for residents and visitors in Greenville. Combining tree lighting with a neighborhood party, along with a Christmas parade, should ensure a fun-packed entry into the holiday spirit.

The parade will take place and will include bands, Santa, and floats. Musical performances by local school children will be part of the festivities. Lighting amongst merchants and visitors will illuminate the city throughout. Many neighborhoods in the city choose a specific holiday theme and decorate accordingly. Local companies sponsor various activities such as caroling or wagon riding.

Park Street Christmas is a yuletide party held two weeks before the holiday. The Park Street Historical Association is the sponsor, and it includes a parade of lanterns along with Victorian marchers. Wagon rides are available to enjoy a tour of the city and the historical homes.

Flyer printing is a regular project for local printing companies for city events. Flyers can be hand-distributed, direct mailed, or posted in high traffic areas to generate interest and increase participation.

Showcasing the spectacular local homes that decorate in high style for the holidays, the Altrusa Club Holiday Tour of Homes is part of the holiday season frivolity. In addition, holiday bazaars and refreshments are available for the guests on the tour.

Join the fun beginning on December 1, on which day the mayor will switch on the lights at 6:30 pm. Visit the Greenville Chamber of Commerce for more information.
