Tuesday night kicks off a Christmas celebration in Halifax which culminates with next week’s Christmas in Halifax event at the Historic Site and the town’s annual Christmas parade.

On Tuesday at 6:30 p.m. a choir will march from the post office to mural park, which will serve as a lead-in to the annual Christmas tree lighting.

Mayor John White will give his welcome and Christmas greetings.

There will be refreshments and a visit from Santa and event organizer Frankie King said organizers will have ornamental snowflakes for attendees to put on the tree.

Next week on December 9, Christmas traditions will be rekindled during Christmas in Halifax.

Decorated homes and churches, living history, along with the annual Christmas parade down King Street will all be held. The parade steps off at 2 p.m.

Christmas in Halifax will be from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

There will be tours of several of the Historic Site’s buildings, decorated with natural materials.

Other buildings and churches not regularly open to the public can be toured, including the 1890 Catholic Church of the Immaculate Conception and the 1852 Glen Ivey House, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The visitor’s center will have a complete schedule and map.

At 10:30 a.m., the Halifax launch of the Discover North Carolina History Worth Repeating will be announced.

Throughout the day, businesses along King Street will open for shopping and the Halifax County Library will show short holiday films from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Santa will make an appearance at 11 a.m.

Following the parade children can visit Santa Claus in the Historic Halifax Visitor Center.

A soup and sandwich luncheon will be served at the Halifax United Methodist Church from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. for a fee.
