Kick off your holiday season with an afternoon of community fun and holiday magic at the Anderson Holiday Festival.
The Saturday, Dec. 7 event is hosted around the clock tower and tree at Anderson Towne Center on the west (Macy’s) side of the streetscape area. The celebration begins at 4 p.m. Santa arrives at 4:15 p.m. on his fire engine “chariot.” Outdoor live entertainment continues until 6 p.m. when everyone gathers around the tree for its lighting. Free wagon rides are part of the fun, along with wood carving, outdoor fire rings and ice sculpting demonstrations. Nearby businesses participate in activities and giveaways.
Whatever the weather, you’ll enjoy indoor and outdoor activities, including the Holiday Passport. It can be exchanged for a gift bag and entry for raffle prizes after six visits to participating Towne Center businesses.
Anderson Towne Center businesses will provide refreshments during the evening. Don’t forget your Mail to Santa at Macy’s and toy donations to be deposited at Huff Realty.
