Light up the season with Carrboro’s annual tree lighting, Carr Mill by Candlelight and Tree Ceremony. This year, instead of stringing lights on the oak tree in front of Townsend Bertram & Company, the community is invited to join together to bring light and love to the tree with a candle lighting ceremony. There will also be performances by Second Shift A Cappella and Katharine Whalen Jazz Squad and complimentary hot chocolate and cider. Don’t forget to put your name in for the raffle prizes provided by stores in Carr Mill Mall.
Enjoy an extra 2nd Friday ArtWalk with caroling and warm beverages at the 140 West Plaza, plus luminaries lighting your way down Franklin Street.
Celebrate the best of American folk and bluegrass at the third annual Holiday Circle Show put on by The ArtsCenter at Earl & Rhoda Wynn Theater.
Embrace the holiday atmosphere and shop at The Carolina Inn Holiday Market filled with chocolates, jewelry and ornaments – complete with food and sweets to get into the spirit of the season.
