Take a trip to downtown Waynesville for its “A Night Before Christmas” celebration from 6-9 p.m. on Dec. 10.
“This is a magical evening in Downtown Waynesville. Let us entertain you and create wonderful holiday memories,” said Buffy Phillips, executive director of the Downtown Waynesville Association.
Businesses remain open until 9 p.m. Downtown is filled with bright lights, hundreds of luminaries, beautifully decorated windows, fine food and drink. Musicians and entertainers perform throughout the evening. First Baptist Church of Waynesville will host its “Bethlehem Marketplace” with a live nativity in its smaller parking lot downtown.
Musicians include Ginny McAfee and McKayla Reece along with Steve Summey and Karen Conner, and Michael Pilgrim, a downtown favorite. The Poetry People return by popular demand.
