It’s that magical time of year again when Foley’s downtown parks transform into a Winter Wonderland. Don’t miss out on any of these fantastic festivities.

This year’s Trim-a-Tree runs Nov. 11 through Dec. 21 at the Tanger Outlet Center. More than 150 artists and craftsmen sell their handmade decorations, ornaments and gifts at this annual holiday bazaar. The Foley Art Center has presented this popular opportunity for the past 50 years.

The city’s official start to the holiday season takes place with Christmas in the Park at 6 p.m. on Dec. 1 in Heritage Park. Come out for caroling, cocoa and – of course – the lighting of the Christmas tree.

The next morning, Dec. 2, the Foley Christmas Parade rolls through the streets of downtown starting at 10 a.m. The parade features bands, lots of floats and the Jolly Old Elf himself.

Do you sometimes wish for a white Christmas? Wishes can come true! Let it Snow takes place right after the parade, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. in Heritage Park. Kids can throw snowballs, listen to Mrs. Claus read stories, and create crafts in the Children’s Art Village.

Make your plans now to ring in the holidays with plenty of family-friendly events in Foley.
