2018 Christmas in the Park

Christmas in the Park will be Friday, December 7th beginning at 6 p.m. at Pittard Park.  Mr. and Mrs. Claus will arrive on the Marigold Express for pictures and Winterville Elementary School children will perform Christmas favorites under the pavilion.   Fun, food and refreshments for all.

Additionally, The Winterville Arts Council (WAC), in conjunction with the City of Winterville and the Circle Ensemble Theatre Company, will host a Charles Dickens Festival this holiday season. The City of Winterville will magically transform into the Victorian era, with businesses, residences, and public buildings decorating in grand Dickensian style.  Decorations can include evergreen and magnolia leaves, ribbons, berries, fruit, and lights. The annual Christmas in the Park will feature roaming carolers and characters such as Father Christmas, Dickens Mayor, Scrooge, the Town Crier, and the beloved Cratchit family just before opening A Christmas Carol at the Winterville Auditorium on December 8. Everyone from the very young to the young at heart can join in the fun. Lists of participating businesses will be distributed to encourage visitors.

 

Write to WintervilleArtsCouncil@gmail.com to be included or for more information.
