It’s going to be a busy weekend of holiday activites in Davie County, highlighted by the Cooleemee Christmas Parade on Saturday.

Also on Saturday, members of the Cooleemee-Mocksville VFW Post 1119 invite area residents to take part in Wreaths for Veterans.

Post members need help in placing 160 wreaths on the graves of veterans buried in Legion Memorial Park, across from the post home on NC 801 in Cooleemee. It starts at 9 a.m..

A brief memorial service will start the morning.

“Families, friends and anyone are invited to place a wreath on the graves of their loved ones or any veteran,” said Wayne Seamon, post commander.


Davie’s final Christmas parade is scheduled for 2 p.m. Saturday in Cooleemee.

The parade starts at the elementary school on Marginal Street, and will wind through town streets, ending at the Zachary House. Santa Claus is scheduled to be on site at the Zachary House to meet with children after the parade.

To enter, just show up (decorated for the holidays, of course) at the school no later than 1 p.m.

Santa in Mocksville

Santa and Mrs. Claus are scheduled to be at the Mocksville Town Park Saturday from 1-4 p.m. A DJ will provide music.

Saturday evening, members of the Davie Community Band will stroll the sidewalks in Downtown Mocksville playing holiday tunes from 6-7 p.m.
