Feel the magic of the season on Sunday, Dec. 5 when the Town of Bermuda Run will host its inaugural Christmas in the Town of Bermuda Run from 2-5 p.m. at the gazebo in the Kinderton Business Park.
Here’s what to expect:
• Gingerbread House contestants must have their houses registered between 1:30 and 2 p.m. At 2, Mayor Rick Cross opens the festivities.
Soon after that, Santa will arrive escorted by the Davie High School Dancing Boots and Pep Band.
Following the performance by the Dancing Boots, the games and carriage rides will open. Tickets will be needed for a carriage ride, available as you enter the Gazebo complex, or from one of the greeters.
From 2:30-4:15, there will be craft activities, a letter to Santa booth (children may write a letter to Santa and share it with him or have it sent via Reindeer mail). There will be sweet treats, and more.
The Gingerbread House contest awards will be announced at 3:30, with the Tacky Sweater Contest judging to follow. At 4:15, Dr. Seusse will make an appearance and read a story written for the event.
The Shady Grove Chorus will follow and will feature some best-loved children’s Christmas songs.
The tree lighting will take place at 4:45 p.m., followed by a sing-a-long.
Participants are asked to bring a small gift for children served by Family Promise and a personal care item for the seniors served by A Storehouse for Jesus. There will be collection boxes at the event.
“You’ll feel the magic of Christmas for sure,” said organizer, Christy Schafer.
