Christmas In The Village Tonight

Halifax’s Christmas In The Village will come to life tonight at 6:30 when the Halifax Village Business Association (HVBA) sponsors a children’s parade, a visit with Santa and Christmas tree lighting at the Halifax Farmers Market on South Main Street.

The public is encouraged to join the Village Business Association as they celebrate the season in the historic county seat.

“Feel the excitement when the Christmas tree comes alive with sparkling lights, and enjoy the miniature Christmas parade where all the participants are children, and the floats are decorated wagons pulled by the participants,” said HVBA President Marsha Hite.

“Music and the aroma of festive foods will drift over the celebration, and you can feast on your favorites. You may even see snowflakes falling,” she added.

Santa also will be in the Village of Halifax tonight lighting the Christmas tree after the parade and then visiting with the youngsters.

Parents can take photographs of their children sitting on Santa’s knee, Hite added.

The children’s parade starts at 6:30 p.m., and parade participants are asked to arrive at 6 p.m. with completed applications.

Pick-A-Pine Plantation also will be selling fresh wreaths, swags and gift items, and persons can have their holiday greenery customized, Hite said.

Those attending are asked to bring their lawn chairs and a warm blanket.

Plenty of parking is available downtown on Main Street; however, Hite said Farmers Market area parking will be closed off for the parade tonight.
