Christmas Tree Lighting & Sleigh Rides in Fuquay-Varina

Last year I went to the Fuquay-Varina for the Tree Lighting Ceremony. I am sure it would have been wonderful, had we got there in time to see the tree lighting or get a sleigh ride for my kids. We didn't. 
December 6, 2012 (a Thursday) I will get a second chance to entertain my kids at this event. The tree lighting and holiday sleigh rides run from 6-8 p.m. But get there early if you want a sleigh ride. In the spirit of giving and helping the Fuquay-Varina community, they are asking all who want a sleigh ride to bring a canned food item as a "ticket" to ride. The line sets up at 5:30 at TR Ashworth and down on Main and Depot Street. The last ride will leave at 7:55 p.m. 

We got there at 7 last year and the ride was all "sold out."
Santa was there last year, but I didn't see if he would be at this Tree Lighting Ceremony. It was a wonderful family event, with free cookies, music and more. Please share if you have any further information about performances or guest appearances.

  1. Looking good. It's almost that time of the year again, better get those decorations ready for everything. So fun much will be had, and it all starts with the idea of the holidays and next comes the amazing Christmas lights.
