‘Tis the Season for Fuquay Varina Holiday Events

Fuquay Varina Holiday Events

Starting with an opportunity to support the local businesses and get some shopping done for the holiday and continuing into December with a community tradition taking place with in minutes of your home at the South Lakes neighborhood, Fuquay Varina Holiday Events are set to kick off and showcase the great things the town has to offer both from its merchants and in the form of beautiful scenery as well.

The first of the upcoming Fuquay Varina Holiday Events will give you the opportunity to show your support for local and area businesses as on Saturday, November 26 Downtown Fuquay Varina (108 Raleigh Street) will be transformed into a holiday shopping center of sorts for the annual “Small Business Saturday” event. This is in accordance with what has become a fairly popular nationwide movement to urge people when “checking items off their Christmas lists” to “Shop Small…NOT the Mall!”

The many great shops, boutiques, and stores locally will be open all day for this first of the Fuquay Varina Holiday Events of the Christmas season and on top of finding some great stuff, you can help boost the local economy and in turn possibly help your neighbors and fellow community members to enjoy a better holiday also.

Once the shopping is done and the tree at home is trimmed, it really starts to feel like “’tis the season,” and none of the annual Fuquay Varina Holiday Events on the annual schedule say this more than the town’s Holiday Sleigh Ride and Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony. . Being held this year on Thursday evening, December 1, the Sleigh Rides will run from 6:00 p.m.-8:00 p.m. and start at TR Ashworth’s at 120 South Main Street.

Always a beautiful setting, as you soak in the atmosphere of the most joyous of Fuquay Varina Holiday Events, there will be 900 tickets allotted this year for the sleigh rides and tickets must either be acquired by being a sponsor of the event, a “friend of downtown,” or via the “sleigh ride ticket purchase day.” Children under the age of two can sit on an adults’ lap and ride for free.
